SS Keewatin in Douglas
The Great Lakes passenger ship, the SS Keewatin, was born in Glasgow, Scotland back in 1907. It plied the waters of Lake Huron and Lake Superior as a luxurious ship for decades and has been permanently docked in Douglas since the late 1960's where it is open to the public as a museum. It is amazing to see how small the compartments are where people bunked. It carried 288 passengers with a crew of 86. The tour takes you all the way through the captains quarters and the bridge.
