Madeira Hull Section Display
Statewide Historic and Cultural Grants. $5,250,000 the first year and $5,250,000 the second year are for history programs and projects operated or conducted by or through local, county, regional, or other historical or cultural organizations; or for activities to preserve significant historic and cultural resources.
Since the Madeira Hull Section Display project was completed just before cold weather set in, the visitation be divers, cyclists or hikers could not be measured. The site is difficult to reach during the winter snow months.
We expect the 1200 - 1700 shore scuba divers per year will once again come to the site when the weather warms and the water of Lake Superior is more conducive for diving. About 400 - 600 people using the Gitchi-Gami Trail will also be able to stop by to see the new addition to the display when the snow melts and the trail is more passable.
The reprinting of the Madeira Bitts brochure will help inform visitors to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park about the display and encourage them to see it.
