|Sailors of the Steamer Myron Memorial
During the early evening of 11-22-1919, the Steamer "Myron" slid beneath the waves of Lake Superior off Whitfish Point during a violent storm. The crew attempted to use the lifeboats while the Captain chose to remain with his ship. The crew perished but the Captain was found near Isle Parisienne, clinging to a portion of the floating wreckage. In the spring of 1920, eight bodies from the "Myron" encased in ice, washed ashore at Salt. Point. They are buried here - May They Rest In Peace.
