City of Washington

In 25 feet of water east of Key Largo, the remains of the City of Washington lie on Elbow Reef. On July 10, 1917 the tugboat Luchenbach #4 towing the City of Washington and the Seneca ran aground on Elbow Reef. The Luchenbach #4 and the Seneca were soon refloated, but the City of Washington broke up and was a total loss within a few minutes.
