Mary Jarecki Shipwreck
As one of the shipwrecks in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, this is the first wreck east of Twelvemile Beach. This wooden bulf freight steamer, heavily laden with iron ore, ran off its course and ground ashore in fog off the mouth of Hurricane River. Today, the remains may still be seen resting on the bare sandstone bottom just outside the breakers near the trail to the lighthouse. The long oak keelsons, studded with iron treenails, are just above water. No lives were lost in this incident.
