Cape Elizabeth (Sakhalin)
Between 1848 and 1874, American whaleships caught bowhead whales off the cape. They also went ashore to obtain wood. On June 24, 1855, the ship Jefferson (396 tons), of New London, was wrecked on the cape during a fog. All hands were saved as well as 300 barrels of whale oil.
