Service History


The Petoskey was built at Manitowoc in 1888 and her home port was Grand Haven, Michigan.
Final Voyage


"The wooden passenger steamer Petoskey burned in the yard of the Sturgeon Bay Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Co. on December 3, 1935. The fire, which was discovered about 8 PM, may have been caused by sparks from acetylene torches being used in the modification of another ship in the yard, the E.G. Crosby. The fire eventually spread to six other ships before being brought under control."
