Anchor of the Edmund Fitzgerald

On November 10, 1975, the lake freighter SS Edmund Fitzgerald Anchor sank on Lake Superior while en route to a steel mill in Detroit, MI. All 29 of her crew perished in the icy waters of Lake Superior that day.

On January 7, 1974, the Fitzgerald lost her bow anchor while docked on the Detroit River. The 12,000-lb anchor remained there at the bottom of the Detroit River until it was recovered on July 20, 1992. Today, the anchor stands outside of the Dossin Great Lakes Museum as a tribute to the memory of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald and her crew.
