Wreck Length: 232 Feet Beam: 36 Feet
Gross Tonnage: 1429 Cargo: Coal
Launched: 1873 by Quayle and Peck in Black River, Ohio
Wrecked: December 1, 1897
Description: Built in 1873, the 232-foot wooden propeller Egyptian was lost 15 miles out of Alpena, Michigan, when it caught fire and sank off Black River in 1897. The vessel was a prototype bulk cargo carrier- a very early predecessor of the 1000-foot bulk freighter now plying the Lakes. Equipped with the first fore-and-aft compound steam engine used on the Lakes, Egyptian is a highly significant historic and archaeological site. Resting in 230 feet of water, the site was discovered by the sanctuary and a team from the University of Texas-Austin in 2010.
