Mackinaw City Historical PathwayThe Algomah sank at the Cheboygan docks in July 1942 and was raised two years later. She was towed to Mackinaw City, filled with stone, and sunk to form the breakwall at the end of Shelpler's ferry dock. In 1947, Captain William Shepler, Jr., founded Shepler's ferry service. Several times a day, Shepler's ferries pass near the resting place of the Algomah, the first ship to offer scheduled ferry service across the Straits.
