Hello from the Lore 

We, at the Great Lakes Lore Maritime Museum (GLLMM), had a great year in 2014 with visitors again, from all over the Globe, viewing our wall collages that honor those who made their livings on the Great Lakes. We had a banner year for attendance at our annual Bell Ringing ceremonies for the four boats lost at sea, SS Carl D. Bradley (1958), SS Cedarville (1965), SS Daniel J. Morrell (1966), and SS Edmund Fitzgerald (1975). The bell is tolled once for each lost man. See our EVENTS section in this Website to view the dates for 2015, for these warm and wonderful celebrations to honor those who lost their lives serving on the Lakes. We welcome you to attend the Bell Ringing’s.


This is the only Maritime Museum that's mission is to honor those who made their livings on the Great Lakes. We have marine artifacts of every kind but our main feature is the collages that cover our walls showing the individual and a biography of their Great Lakes career. We are extremely proud to have that singular distinction! 
 

We have many events during the year. A partial listing of events can be found on this Web Site under the Events tab.
