Shipwreck Near Sturgeon Bay Entered into Historic Register

Earlier this month, the Wisconsin Historical Society announced that the wreck of the car ferry Lakeland was entered into the National and State Registers of Historic Places. The vessel went down in Lake Michigan, six miles east of the Sturgeon Bay ship canal in 1924. She lies upright in about 200 feet of water. Built in 1887, the Lakeland carried a cargo of cars and packaged goods, including Canadian whiskey during its ill-fated voyage. The state register and national register programs are administered by the Division of Historic Preservation-Public History at the State Historical Society in Madison.
