Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial Service to take place Wednesday, November 10, at Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum

  #

On November 10, 1975, the 729-foot steamer Edmund Fitzgerald was lost in an infamous Lake Superior storm near Whitefish Point, Michigan with her entire crew of 29 men. The Fitzgerald's story has become a popular legend through a song by Canadian folksinger Gordon Lightfoot – and the cause of her loss remains a mystery thirty-five years later.

The bell of this most famous Great Lakes shipwreck was recovered at the request of surviving family members in 1995 and is now on display as a memorial at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point, Michigan. The Shipwreck Museum will offer its annual Memorial Service this year on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 beginning at 7:00 pm in the Shipwreck Museum building.
