Kalakala Nominated as Historic Place; Great Lakes Maritime History

The art-deco ferry Kalakala [link] has been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. The ferry carried passengers from Seattle to Bremerton from 1936 until 1967. In 2001, she was towed from Alaska to Seattle and then to Tacoma, where her new owners hope to restore her as a tourist attraction. Here's the story in the Seattle P-I. [link]

The World History Blog [link] has a brief discussion of the Maritime History of the Great Lakes website.
