Low water level in Lake Michigan has exposed remains of the schooner City of Green Bay, which went down during a storm on October 3, 1887. Only one of the seven crewmen was saved, due to a botched rescue attempt that resulted in the dismissal of the captain of the South Haven Lifesaving Station.
This was at least the ship’s third wreck in her fifteen year life. She had previously been condemned after an incident in the West Indies, but after a reprieve she moved from the Atlantic trade to the Great Lakes, where she ran aground on Thunder Bay Island during a Lake Huron fog. Four years later, Lake Michigan finished the job.
Lest anyone get any ideas, the state owns the hulk.
