The Joan of Arc vacation rental - built from a shipwreck*

The beautiful Joan of Arc was built in 1921*, partly from the salvaged wood from the steamship Joan of Arc.

The ship was built in 1918 in San Pedro, California, a three-masted wooden ship that carried lumber from Portland to San Pedro.

In November 1920, she hit Northwest rock, part of the Rogue River reef. She was abandoned and eventually drifted aground in Port Orford harbor, just south of Battle Rock.

The ship's lumber and fittings were salvaged and used in several buldings here.*

* It seems facts have overtaken this local legend, turning it into myth. The Joan of Arc was wrecked Nov. 16, 1920. But the census that year lists this home as residence as of Jan 9, that same year.
