Day of History: July 19 in Michigan City, Indiana

Come and join us for a day of learning about Indiana’s Historic Shipwrecks on Tuesday, July 19! With this “passport in time,” you’ll learn about Indiana’s history and the sailors who braved the rough waters of Lake Michigan in the pioneer years of the state’s development. Your travel itinerary is listed below.

Shipwrecks, like the wreck of the Muskegon (also known as the Peerless), which happened 100 years ago this fall, are memorials to Indiana’s maritime history. With funding from NOAA, Indiana’s Lake Michigan Coastal Management Program is coordinating archaeological investigations of shipwrecks in the Indiana waters of Lake Michigan.
