The Bon Voyage Packet Steamer

July 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm EDT

The Keweenaw County Historical Society hosts “The Bon Voyage Packet Steamer,” presented by Stephen Roblee , MTU Prof. Emeritus of History. 

On May 10, 1901, the Bon Voyage with a crew of 26 and 5 female passengers sailed out of Ontonagon Harbor enroute to Keweenaw ports. It would not arrive. Fire broke out off Redridge and raged out of control. Mystery surrounds the disaster and raises questions. Why did event accounts by the crew, the media and surviving female vary so significantly?

There is a $6.00 fee ($5.00 for KCHS members) payable at the door.
