The Search for the Westmoreland
6:00 PM, Tuesday, January 7

“ On December 7, 1854, the Propeller Westmoreland foundered in Lake Michigan, near Sleeping Bear Dune, killing seventeen of her crew and passengers. Seventeen crew and passengers lived, however, and landed in lifeboats on the shore of Platte Bay. Soon after the passenger 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 the Great Lakes, eluding salvagers, treasure-hunters and divers alike. Join author/shipwreck hunter Ross Richardson in exploring the legend, history and discovery of Lake Michigan's treasure shipwreck”. Brought to you through the generosity of the Friends of Hackley Library.
