Wedge Wreck

A 1715 Fleet wreck site that is located near Fort Pierce Inlet across from Pepper Park. Also referred to as the “Urca de Lima’, the Wedge Wreck is known for silver wedges found on this site by Kip Wagner. Not much has been salvaged from this wreck compared to other 1715 Fleet wreck sites. Cannons were recovered from this site in 1906 and again in 1928. Many of the recovered cannons were placed in Fort Pierce city parks.
