Fun Facts About the Great Lakes – Shipwrecks & Mysteries

The Shapes of Lake Superior
The Great Lakes are a series of interconnected freshwater lakes located in North America along the Canadian border. Created by melt water around 14,000 years ago as a glacier moved across the land and carved out the beginning of the great lakes, they are now the largest group of freshwater lakes on earth. As we marvel at their beauty and mystery, we have compiled some of our favorite findings to share with you.

Over 6,000 shipwrecks are buried beneath the waters of the Great Lakes, and with 14,000 years of history, we wonder what else they are hiding. The cold water of the lakes has aided in the preservation of the wrecks for over a hundred years.
