Barge Wreck

The remains of a wooden barge are located within the Burning Basin. It was used by Bethlehem Steel during the creation of the Burning Basin and placed in service in 1942 – 1943. It was likely used as a work platform and for hauling dredge spoil, cargo, and scrap during the disposal operation. Iron fittings are still evident so take care when navigating around the remains.
