Lake Superior, Michigan: Wreckage from a ship that went down in 1891 was discovered

DEER PARK (Mich.) -- The wreckage of a ship carrying coal was discovered at Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

According to the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society, Atlanta is preserved in the very cold lake.


 

The shipwreck group posted photos and video showing the ship's name clearly at depths of over 600 feet, approximately 35 miles from Deer Park in Michigan.

Bruce Lynn, executive director at the shipwreck organization, said that the wreck is still stunning after being buried in Lake Superior for 130 years.

According to the group, sonar technology played a crucial role in locating Atlanta.

According to the group, the ship had its sails down and was being pulled by another vessel when it snapped in a storm. Although crew members were able to get into a lifeboat, only two of them survived the boat's overturning.
