Freighter SS Ohio collides with schooner Ironton in Lake Huron
September 26, 2021 @ 12:00 am
On this day in 1894, the SS Ohio, a wooden-hulled freighter, collided with the schooner Ironton, which was being towed by another steamer in Lake Huron. Both ships sunk. The Ohio was amazingly found upright in 2017, over 122 years after her sinking, in over 200 feet of water near Presque Isle. The Ironton is still missing.
