Great Lakes Steamship Society
Help Us to Save a Classic Great Lakes Steamship
The Great Lakes Steamship Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the 1904-vintage Great Lakes steamship J.B. Ford. In a career that lasted over a century, this grand old lady of the Lakes carried the goods that fed the industrial might of our nation, hauled the raw materials that helped to win two world wars, and survived some of the Great Lakes’ worst storms, including the infamous “White Hurricane” of 1913. Please support us in our efforts to save this historic ship.
