We decided to walk around St Marys after dinner. While walking around St Marys we visited the Washington Pump and Oak. It's located in the median of the road with historical marker providing the history of the Washington Pump and Oak.

Located across the street from the St.Marys welcome center, a stump is all that remains of an ancient live oak that was harvested to restore the USS Constitution. The water pump was the sole source of water in early St. Marys days.

I caught this "site" only because I bought the self-guided tour booklet at the welcome center and happened to read about it as I walked past! I like learning about snippets of history when visiting small towns.

A little historical display showing the remnants of an oak planted as memorials at the death of George Washington. The pump was one of several used in the town. It's right in the middle of the street and if not for the plaque you'd probably...More

Just a spot to see a fairly unusual bit of history while touring the town. In middle of street - but not much traffic.
