Sunken 133-Year-Old Steamer Found in Lake Huron

Posted: Updated:

A 133-year-old steamer that sank has been found in Lake Huron.

A shipwreck hunter says the 283-foot wooden steamer was found earlier this year miles north of Port Austin.

Divers made about 30 trips down from July through September.

Divers had been looking for the ship for the past two years, the ship was carrying coal from Detroit to Ontario on October 1, 1910, when it was caught in a storm with gale-force winds.
