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.

About the presenter: Daniel R. Fountain
