Lake Erie is lovely but dangerous. Its shallow depth and severe storms have combined to sink more than a thousand ships over the centuries, including several that sank off the shores of Lake County.
Learn more about the shipwrecks of Lake Erie during a special online program that’s led by the Lake County History Center and hosted by us at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21.
