Events, News

SPRING LAKE -- The public is invited to join shipwreck hunter Ross Richardson at Spring Lake District Library on Wed., Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. to hear how he discovered the wreck of the Westmoreland earlier this year.  Richardson will share the legend of the Westmoreland, one of the earliest propellers on the Great Lakes, which was dubbed Lake Michigan’s Treasure Ship. Rumored to have carried gold as well as whiskey and brandy, the Westmoreland has long been sought after by shipwreck hunters since its sinking in 1854. Richardson discovered the historic wreck in Lake Michigan near Sleeping Bear Dunes in August 2010. 

For more information call the library at (616) 846-5770, ext. 107.  The library is located at 123 E. Exchange St. in Spring Lake.
