SS Meteor with the Superior Public Museums
Learn the history of the SS Meteor, the last remaining above-water whaleback ship in the world!
The whaleback freighter was designed by Captain Alexander McDougall and built here in Superior, Wisconsin. These ships, innovative for their time, earned the name “whaleback” for their cigar-shaped steel hulls that rode low in the water when loaded with cargo.
