Kewaunee, Green Bay & Western Railroad ferry slip No. 1, to your right, is the point where car-ferry service across Lake Michigan began. On Sunday, November 27, 1892, Ann Arbor Railroad car-ferry No. 1 loaded 22 cars of flour which originated at Minneapolis and were destined to England, Scotland and Ireland - the first boatload of box cars to be transported across Lake Michigan - a service later extended to other ports.

I Saw The Marker

This marker is located on a tiny public space where the road terminates at the waters edge. There are a few picnic tables to enjoy a view of the Kewaunee Harbor.
