A Ship Was Built And Left To Decay In The Middle Of Wisconsin’s Bratwurst City

On the evening of April 8, 1894, things went terribly wrong for a sailing ship that was just off the shore of Sheboygan. It would be the final voyage for the Lottie Cooper, but the trip wasn’t quite over. More than a century after this ship ran into big trouble, it’s resting quietly in a Sheboygan park. It’s a fascinating bit of history that’s slowly disappearing. Here’s why you need to see this old boat while you still can.

While the Lottie Cooper rests on the shore, there are dozens of shipwrecks still underwater near Sheboygan. The town is popular for scuba divers and of course, anyone who loves a good bratwurst.
