The Acara, or Tea Wreck as she's known, was British built in 1898. She was a steel hulled stream freighter owned by James Marke Wood of Liverpool. On March 1, 1902,
heading for New York from Britain the Acara encountered a gale and ground on the bar just East of Jones Inlet, Long Island. The crew was saved but the wreck broke in half
after two days in the pounding surf.
