Together, the shipwrecks of Thunder Bay make up a collection of ship-types that span 200 years of Great Lakes shipping. They also hold the stories of countless sailors and passengers who traveled the freshwater seas. The collection of sanctuary shipwrecks reflects the transition in ship architecture and construction, from wooden schooners to early steel-hulled steamers, as well as types of ships unique to the Great Lakes. Some of their stories are still to be discovered.
