Lake Superior Losses: Marquette Shipwrecks

-

Virtual

After iron ore was discovered about ten miles of Marquette, Michigan, in 1844, the city soon developed into Lake Superior’s first great port. In fact, from 1855 to the 1880s, Marquette received more vessels in a single week than Duluth, Minnesota, did in an entire season. With that increased traffic, however, came increased accidents. Led by the director of the Marquette Maritime Museum, this presentation will discuss those Marquette-area wrecks—from the Siskowit (1849) to the Maryland (1953).
