Explore Great Lakes Shipwrecks . . .

DID YOU KNOW? The Great Lakes harbor historical treasures. More than 700 wrecks -- some known, many yet to be discovered -- are scattered along Wisconsin's coasts from Kenosha to Superior. Each wreck is like a chapter of Great Lakes history. Discover more underwater history with the Underwater Exploration Timeline.

In partnership with Wisconsin Sea Grant, the Wisconsin Historical Society works to preserve these ships. Read an interview with Keith Meverden, Underwater Archaeologist.
