Perfectly preserved 1894 shipwreck found in Thunder Bay NMS

When a 772-ton wooden schooner barge named Ironton collided with a wooden freighter loaded with 1,000 tons of grain and sank in Lake Huron on Sept. 26, 1894, its seven-man crew tried to escape on a lifeboat.


But no one untied the rope that secured the lifeboat to Ironton. Five crew members died.
