Final Voyage


April 16,1880. The scow-schooner Evergreen, bound from Muskegon, Michigan, to Racine, Wisconsin, with a load of wood slabs and a crew of four men, went onto the beach a mile south of the United States Life-Saving Service Eleventh District's Station 15 (between Milwaukee's south pier and the Bay View rolling mill docks) while attempting to enter the harbor at Milwaukee. The crew managed to escaped to the beach with the help of bystanders. The following day the life saving crew arrived at the scene with the surf-boat in tow of the tug Welcome and found the Evergreen going to pieces. They managed to salvage the sails, rigging, and gear and threw the deck load overboard. The vessel soon went to pieces and became a total loss.

4/19/1880 "The scow Evergreen, beached below the harbor on Friday, has since become a complete wreck. One of her sides adorns the shore, the other lies alongside the craft, and nothing remains in position except the bow and stern." Milwaukee Sentinel 4/19/1880
