About Steamship America: A North Shore Legend
Before high-speed internet, telephones, and even Highway 61, Minnesota’s North Shore was connected by water–specifically, a fleet of sailing vessels and steamers that hauled mail, fish, freight, and passengers to communities up and down the remote coastline. The Steamer America was a star in the early 1900s, with her speed and relative luxury she became a vital lifeline and a friend to many.
