The prow of U.S.S. Michigan/Wolverine in Erie Maritime Museum
U.S.S. Michigan was the first iron-hulled warship in the U.S. Navy and on the Great Lakes. It was built in Pittsburgh and re-assembled in Erie in 1870. It was powered by side-paddlers and sails. In 1905, she was renamed U.S.S. Wolverine when a new battleship was commissioned as U.S.S. Michigan.
In spite of local efforts to save her, the U.S.S. Wolverine was scrapped in 1949. Only her prow was saved from the scrapman's torch. On February 26th 1998, the prow was moved to its new home on the First Mezzanine Level of the Erie Maritime Museum.
I shot this during our 16th anniversary getaway to Erie.
