Service History


The wooden steamer Eugene C. Hart was built in 1890 as a package freighter. She served the Hart Shipping Line until 1917 when she was sold and sent to the east coast during World War I. In 1919 she was renamed the Norlond and in the spring of 1922 returned to the Great Lakes.
Final Voyage


"November 13, 1922. The package freighter Norlond left Chicago for Milwaukee Saturday night, putting in for Racine during a gale, and continuing Monday morning. Soon after leaving Racine, she sprang a leak, and after trying to save her for two hours, the Captain and crew took to lifeboats. The Norlond sank stern first off of Milwaukee's South Point with $500,000 in cargo."
Today


"The Norlond sets upright in 58 feet of water on a sand and mud bottom, broken up and scattered about. The upper portion of the hull has fallen apart with the boiler, shaft and propeller, keel exposed. The cargo of general merchandise had been strewn across the bottom.
