Christmas Tree Ship
The Christmas Tree Ship, presented by Rochelle Pennington
Wednesday, December 4, 2019, 6:30 pm
The story of the Christmas Tree Ship has inspired paintings, poems, songs, television programs, a musical, and a "new" Christmas Tree Ship sailed by the Great Lakes Coast Guard each holiday as a living memorial. Come join us for Rochelle Pennington's presentation, which includes original photographs and will focus on little-known facts: clues washed ashore over the decades following the ship's mysterious disappearance, ghost ship sightings, and omens observed before the ship set sail on November 22, 1912. Artifacts raised from the sunken ship will be on display, along with underwater photos of the ship in its current state at the bottom of Lake Michigan.
