100 years ago-
The Samuel Mather was driven onto Gull Rock near Keweenaw Point during a snow storm and gale winds. The crew was safely removed from the badly exposed steamer by the Eagle Harbor Life Saving crew.

The ship was repaired and served a long life on The Great Lakes. When it was finally scrapped, its mast was acquired by Captain Richard Metz and donated to  KCHS where it is now displayed.

You can find a bounty of stories about Keweenaw shipwrecks in our triannual newsletter The Superior Signal  by becoming a member.
