Kyle Spangler

Pictured here are the schooner Kyle Spangler's two masts and deck equipment. Imagine all the sounds you would hear on deck as sails were furled in a sharp fall breeze! Kyle Spangler was hit by the steamer Racine during the night of November 7, 1860. The crew lost the battle to keep the ship afloat, and it sank in 180 feet of water off Presque Isle.
