Hello From The Lore!
Here we are in 2013 about to welcome in Spring. We look forward to another fantastic year here at the “Lore”. Last year we saw visitors from all over Michigan, other states and the world! This year we expect many more visitors as we have added to our displays and inductee collages.
We are the only museum, on the Great Lakes, that honors people. These are people that made their livings on the Great Lakes, in all types of careers; Coast Guard, Lighthouse Keepers, Fishing personnel, Sailors of all ranks, Life Saving personnel, divers and bridge-tenders, etc. We welcome anyone who wants to be part of our HALL of FAME. We are always looking for people that had unique jobs on the Great Lakes that we normally don’t hear about. Please see our Inductees section for a link that pulls up a form for you to fill out. Register now to have someone be part of the history we honor.
We are a Non-Profit Organization. We are always looking for new members. We also need renewed memberships to sustain our existence. By renewing your membership, or starting a new one, we are able to continue on our quest to honor deserving people for their contribution to Great Lakes history.

We have several bell ringing events to honor the men who lost their lives in the sinking’s of the SS’s Cedarville, Daniel J. Morrell, Carl D. Bradley and Edmund Fitzgerald. See the events section to get date and times for these memorable events.
In August we will conduct an Induction ceremony where approximately 15 individuals will be honored by having a bell rung in their honor and a collage with their career information displayed on the walls of the museum for all visitors to see. The weekend event starts out on Friday, August 16 th at 1:00PM with a tour of the Calcite quarry. That evening we are honored to have renowned diving expert, David Trotter, give a presentation about some of the discoveries he made on diving Great Lake wrecks. Saturday, August 17 th, will bring in a luncheon with the Induction Ceremony following. See the events section for details. If you know someone that deserves to honored, let us know and we can inform you as to how it can be done.
Have a great and safe “rest of the winter”.
