Wreck of the Contest re-emerges from Lake Michigan near Whitehall
The remains of the Contest, a 124-foot schooner that grounded near White Lake in 1882, are visible again thanks to shifting beach sand and dropping Lake Michigan water levels. The wreck was last visible in 2018 when dune erosion uncovered frames and keelson that had previously been buried under several feet of sand since 1974, according to the Michigan Shipwreck Research Association (MSRA). The Contest is one of several schooners that grounded near White Lake in the mid-to-late 1800s. The Contest was built in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1855 and hauled grain and lumber around lakes Michigan, Huron and Erie. The dune is likely to reclaim the wreck in the near future as the lake level fluctuates.mlive.com
