Cleveland Underwater Explorers may have discovered Lake Erie’s oldest shipwreck, the Lake Serpent.
The group first discovered the wreck back in 2015. Over the years, they have narrowed hundreds of possible shipwrecks down to three based on size and possible location. The group says the wreck is most likely the 47-foot, two-masted Lake Serpent.
Carrying stone from the Lake Erie islands and bound for Cleveland, the ship sank in 1829. There were six people on board, according to news reports from the time.
