The bow of the F.T. Barney (1856–1868) looms out of the shadows of Lake Huron. The stillness belies the speed at which it sank; within two minutes after colliding with the schooner T.J. Bronson, the Barney was 160 feet below the surface of Lake Huron. The wreck is one of the most complete of its kind with masts and deck equipment still in place.
