The Wreck of the Otraska Walking Tour

On a warm morning in October 1861 seven young men sailed forth from Portland for a day of fishing aboard the Otraska. A sudden squall surprised them and led to the sinking of the vessel and the deaths of all but one. Stroll through Evergreen as we weave the tale of the Otraska, her crew, their lives and demise.
