What Lies Beneath Lake Erie

Featured Audio

The fascinating discovery of a long-sunken ship in Lake Erie is just the latest find in a lake rich with shipwrecks. We'll meet with the underwater explorer who found the Argo, which sunk in 1937. And we'll talk about the history, and discovery, of shipwrecks all over the Great Lakes, including the Edmund Fitzgerald. Can you believe it's been 40 years since the "gales of November came early?"

Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial Brewmaster's Dinner  -Monday, November 16, 2015 - 6:00pm - Forty years after the ill-fated SS Edmund Fitzgerald sank beneath the waters of Lake Superior we honor the crew with a specially crafted Memorial Brewmaster's Dinner. The evening includes a four course beer and food pairing featuring classic menu items traditionally served to freighter crews on the Great Lakes. Speakers from the Great Lakes Historical Society and Great Lakes Brewing Company will also offer special recognition of the 29 souls lost on board the SS Edmund Fitzgerald.
