Join us tomorrow night, November 15 at 7pm, for author Ross Richardson’s presentation on his book The Search for the Westmoreland. On December 7, 1854, the Propeller Westmoreland foundered in deep water near Sleeping Bear Dunes, killing 17 of her crew and passengers. Soon after the steamer’s sinking, rumors began circulating of $10,000 in gold coins in her safe and 280 barrels of whiskey in her hold. For the next 150 years the Westmoreland was one of the most sought after shipwrecks in all of the Great Lakes. Author and shipwreck hunter Ross Richardson will explore the legend, history and discovery of the Lake Michigan treasure shipwreck.
