Built in 1881 at Gold Beach, Oregon, the Mary D. Hume is a historic steamer, mostly a wreck of a steamer. It was constructed for the wealthy pioneer and businessman, RD Hume back in the time when Gold Beach was still known as Ellensburg.

The Mary D. Hume was built to aid its owner in its cannery operations. RD Hume owned a fish cannery in the area, so he would need a water vessel to aid his transactions. After Hume?s use of the boat, it passed through various owners, until it was retired in the 1970s.

The Mary D. Hume met her demise when efforts to restore it and turn it into a museum ship were started. It slid into the mud which was followed by a lawsuit that has caused the Curry County Historical Society to lose its restoration funds for the vessel. The wreck can still be found in Gold Beach until today.
