The wooden steamer Arizona was built in Cleveland in 1868.  She had a length of 201 feet and beam of 32 1/2 feet.  In December 1922 the Arizona caught fire at Cape Vincent.  She was towed up river for 1 1/2 miles and then scuttled.  Later the ship remains were dynamited to prevent it from being a navigational hazard.
