Wreckage of commercial ship that sank in 1940 discovered in Lake Superior: See photographs

The wreckage of the merchant ship Arlington, which sank in 1940, has been discovered in Lake Superior.

The Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society and researcher Dan Fountain made the discovery.

The Arlington was found over 600 feet deep, about 35 miles north of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula.

Fountain had been studying remote sensing data for shipwrecks in Lake Superior for a decade.

An anomaly led Fountain to seek assistance from the shipwreck society.

In 2023, a marine sonic technology side-scan sonar confirmed the anomaly as a shipwreck.

The ship, loaded with wheat, sank after encountering dense fog and a storm while en route from Port Arthur, Ontario, to Owen Sound, Ontario.

The ship's first mate ordered a course change to seek shelter from wind and waves near the Canadian north shore.
