McDougall’s Dream is our annual gathering to raise funds for restoration and preservation of the SS Meteor. Our morning field trip this year will be a ride on the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad. The trip follows the shoreline of the St. Louis River. Ride on a right-of-way more than 140 years old in restored coaches nearly 100 years old. Daytime talks will take place at the Bong Historical Center in Superior, and will include presentations on the SS Pillsbury; the Pacific Steel Barge Company; information on the Fraser Shipyards donation to the UWS Library; and the Duluth-Superior Port today. A dinner catered by the Duluth Grill, keynote speaker Tamara Thompson from the Wisconsin Historical Society, and a silent auction fill the evening. Reservations are recommended. For more information or to make your reservations, call Superior Public Museums at 715-394-5712.
