The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society has discovered the remains of a ship that sank 103 years ago in Lake Superior off Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The society announced this month that it found the wreck of the S.R. Kirby last year near the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Bruce Lynn, the executive director at Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, tells WWTV/WWUP-TV that the Kirby went down on May 8, 1916.
