SHIPWRECK SOCIETY DISCOVERS 148 YEAR OLD THREE MASTED SCHOONER OFF LAKE SUPERIOR’S SOUTHERN COASTLINE
The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society (GLSHS), a leader in the field of underwater exploration and shipwreck documentation on the Upper Great Lakes, recently discovered the wreckage of the 199’ schooner Nelson. The vessel sank near Grand Marais, Michigan, in May 1899. Nelson, a large three masted schooner built in 1866, rests in over 200’ of water and is amazingly intact, despite laying on the bottom of Lake Superior for 115 years after foundering in heavy weather.
