A barge owned by the Murray Company operated in Alpena during the first decade of the 20th century doing all sorts of harbor improvements, dredging, and building of breakwaters. The derelict was finally abandoned sometime before 1910 and today is broken apart and scattered on the lake bottom in Isaacson Bay.
