The Marquette Regional History Center presents: A Most Outlandish Place

November 6, 2018

Marquette, MINovember 6, 2018 – The Marquette Regional History Center presents:
A Most Outlandish Place, The Wreck of the J. S. Seaverns on Wednesday, November 7th from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

In the spring of 1884, the small wooden steamer J. S. Seaverns called at the remote Lake Superior port of Michipicoten Harbor, carrying much-needed supplies and provisions for the workers building the Canadian Pacific Railroad along the North Shore. Striking a rock while leaving the dock, the vessel filled and sank with no lives lost. After unsuccessful attempts to locate and salvage the Seaverns, the boat was forgotten for more than a century. Discovered in the summer of 2016, the wreck lies beautifully preserved in the cold, clear depths of Lake Superior. In his presentation, Dan Fountain will tell of the history, the sinking, the crew’s stories, and the search for the Seaverns, utilizing historical photos and new underwater video.… Read the rest

Marquette, MIOctober 6, 2018 – We are excited to announce the return of the formerly known GUMC (Grace United Methodist Church) Sauerkraut Supper! For over 30 years this supper has been a very well attended meal consisting of Roasted Pork, a special recipe of sauerkraut along with mashed potatoes/gravy, and all the trimmings. There will be raffle baskets and entertainment for the diner’s pleasure or for those who may need to wait for seating.

Due to situations beyond their control the GUMC (Grace United Methodist Church) was dissolved and with it the loss of this supper.
