Three ships of the United States Navy have been named Conestoga after the Conestoga wagon, a broad wheeled, covered, wagon first built in Conestoga, Pennsylvania.

  • USS Conestoga was the planned name for the monitor USS Sangamon (1862) and the name was changed while the ship was still on the stocks. She served in the American Civil War and later served in the Spanish-American War as Jason.
