Explore Eagle Harbor’s Maritime History

The Ephraim Historical Foundation’s 2022 exhibit, Wrecked: Ephraim’s Maritime Triumphs and Tragedies, will open June 17 to share maritime artifacts, stories of wrecked schooners off the Eagle Harbor shore, and the relationship between people and the lake.

Nestled against a harbor shoreline on one of the world’s largest bodies of freshwater, the Village of Ephraim has been part of maritime networks for thousands of years. From Indigenous Peoples to Euro-Americans, shore dwellers have depended on the lake as a means of survival, transportation and commerce

The free exhibition is open Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 am – 4 pm, until mid-October in the Anderson Barn Museum, 3060 Anderson Lane in Ephraim.

This exhibit is a part of a larger Ephraim Historical Foundation season of museum openings, programs, events, tours and more, available June-October. Find out how to experience Ephraim’s history at
