Frederick Griffing's ship is the remains of a sailing vessel buried beneath the current Levi's Plaza in San Francisco where Frederick Griffing's wharf previously existed.[2] When the plaza was constructed in 1978, the archaeological site was discovered. It is believed that the ship is either the Palmyra or the William Grey.[3][4]
