Exhibit finds home at Great Lakes maritime heritage center

The Pewabic.

ALPENA, Mich. - A life-sized model of the Pewabic shipwreck's hull has been moved to its new home at the recently opened Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center in Alpena.

The hull replica and other artifacts are among the exhibits of the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary and Underwater Preserve. They were moved to the center last week.

Sanctuary education coordinator Cathy Green says exhibits will have about ten times more space in their new home.

The hull was moved from its previous location at the federal building. Green says visitors will feel as if they're stepping into the Pewabic as passengers.

The wooden passenger and package freighter carrier sank in August 1865 on Thunder Bay following a collision with sister ship Meteor.
