  The Wreck today  

Gothro Phil29/03/2012

The City of Concord lies upright in 45 feet of water. The center of the vessel is broken up but some decking remains at the stern. It is possible to get between decks without knowing it if you are not careful. Look for her rudder, prop, large double-boiler, capstan, and windlass

Gothro Phil14/02/2012Upbound with a load of coal the American steamer City of Concord was caught by a gale and sprang a leak. Her fires were drowned and the vessel sank with no steam to run her pumps. The crew made it to shore in tiny yawlboat, even though they had only one oar. Owned by N. Mills, Port Huron. Master: Capt. Chas. McEaghern.

About Builders
 Peck & Masters, Cleveland
At the age of 25, Captain Eli Peck set up his own yard in among already existing shipyards, dry docks, and related establishments near what is now West 58th Street in Cleveland along the Cuyahoga River. In 1849 Eli Peck entered into a partnership with Irvine U. Masters to form a shipbuilding giant that bore their names, Peck & Masters. This partnership would last until Masters dies in 1865, Peck would continue on building another 50 ships in the next seven years. He would close the shipyard in 1872 to follow other endevers.
