Wisconsin's Maritime Trails

GLIN Site of the Month The Maritime Preservation and Archaeology Program of the Wisconsin Historical Society investigates and publicizes Wisconsin's rich maritime history. Centuries of exploration, travel, commerce, and recreation on the Great Lakes have left an impressive trail of maritime cultural resources along Wisconsin's Great Lakes shorelines and bottomlands. To foster wider public appreciation of the state's rich maritime past and encourage preservation of unique historic sites such as shipwrecks, lighthouses and historic waterfronts, the Wisconsin Historical Society established the Maritime Trails program.
