USS Miantonomoh, a 3990-ton monitor, was built at Chester, Pennsylvania, and commissioned in an incomplete state in October 1882. Construction continued at the New York Navy Yard, and she entered service in October 1891. Miantonomoh's active service was mainly spent along the U.S. east coast, but she operated off Cuba during the Spanish-American War. She was decommissioned for the last time in December 1907, but was not sold until January 1922.
