While most people may not know it, 22 percent of the state of Wisconsin is actually underwater. Amidst all of this water, there are numerous shipwrecks, which represent part of the state's important historical past. As part of a partnership between the Wisconsin Historical Society and the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute, this informative website was designed "to foster wider public appreciation of the state's rich maritime past and encourage preservation of unique historic sites." On the site, visitors can research a searchable database of Wisconsin shipwrecks, read field notes from underwater archaeologists, and learn about visiting various maritime sights, including lighthouses, museums and, of course, shipwreck sites. The real highlight of the site is the video gallery, which allows visitors to take underwater tours of over ten different shipwreck sites in Lake Michigan and Lake Superior without ever getting wet. Finally, the site is rounded out by the inclusion of educational materials designed for teachers and young people.
