S.S. Keewatin

S.S. Keewatin

Port McNicoll, Ontario

Five years older than Titanic, this British-built ship - the last Edwardian liner in the world - traversed the Great Lakes for 58 years (1907 to 1965). Built originally to move immigrants from Southern Ontario to the top of Lake Superior so they could reach farmlands in Alberta and Saskatchewan, in 1920 the S.S. Keewatin became a tourist cruise ship, taking Americans and well-heeled Canadians to visit the Canadian west. The Keewatin has since been lovingly restored and appears to be ready to leave for a voyage. Her staterooms are staged, her dining room is set and even her engine works and performs for visitors. You have to see it to believe it!
