Indiana is working with the Commonwealth Cultural Resources Group to help better understand our Lake Michigan shipwrecks and citizen interest in them. Please help us by participating in a brief survey.
During its May 2011 meeting in Angola, Indiana, the LMCMP reported to the Commission regarding plans for the Indiana Lake Michigan Underwater Archaeological Resources Project.
On June 11, 2011, Indiana Dunes State Park commemorated the tragedy of the sinking 100 years ago of the JD Marshall. Four men died, and the boat remains offshore from the Park pavilion, where the propeller is on display. The commemoration included a talk by Gene Hasiak of the Underwater Archaeological Society of Chicago.
