SS Milwaukee Clipper

SS Milwaukee Clipper

The SS Milwaukee Clipper, also known as SS Clipper, formerly as the SS Juniata, is a retired passenger ship and automobile ferry that sailed under two configurations and traveled on all of the Great Lakes except Lake Ontario. The Clipper was built in 1904 and is the only US passenger steamship left on the Great Lakes and is designated as a U.S. National Historic Landmark. The "Queen of the Great Lakes,” as she was also known, is currently docked in Muskegon, undergoing restoration by volunteers of the SS Milwaukee Clipper Preservation, Inc. organization. The ship is open for tours on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5 pm through Labor Day weekend. Visitors can now tour the pilothouse, some staterooms, crew quarters, dance floor, soda bowl and movie theater. A large collection of the original Art Deco furniture remains on board. There are also displays of memorabilia from both the Juniata and the Clipper, which include memory books, photographs, brochures, dishes and other items of interest. Welcome aboard!!
