2015 Autumn Excursion Pic 2

Members of Friends of the Wisconsin Historical Society are invited to take a two-hour cruise around Milwaukee Harbor aboard the SV Denis Sullivan, the world’s only re-creation of a 19th century three-mast Great Lakes schooner ship.

The schooner ship voyage on Wednesday, September 23 is part of the FWHS Autumn Excursion. For those who cannot make the full Excursion, you can still sign up for the schooner boat tour portion for $45. The tour will include a brief talk on “Pirates of the Great Lakes” by Dan Heiber. The crew of the Denis Sullivan will guide tour participants in actually sailing the schooner for those that wish. The boat tour departs from the Discovery World Pier in Milwaukee at 8:30 am and will return at 10:30.

To sign up for this exciting adventure aboard a unique boat from the history of the Great Lakes, contact FWHS Tour Coordinator JoEllen Hegwood at 414-476-4061 or jojohegwood1@gmail.com.
