Why is There a Giant Marble Crucifix at the Bottom of Lake Michigan?
It's an 11-foot tall crucifix with a statue of Jesus 5-foot-5-inches.
What's it doing at the bottom of Lake Michigan?
Originally it was to be used as a grave marker for a 15-year-old boy who was killed in a farm accident in 1956. When the family received it, it was damaged and they refused to pay for it...but they are not the ones who sunk it to the bottom of the lake.
It was purchased by the Wyandotte Superior Marine Club to be used as a marker for all people who died in shipwrecks on Lake Michigan.
It was viewed this past weekend after a hole was cut in the ice...maybe this summer, you can head up to Little Traverse Bay in Petoskey and see it for yourself!
