Edna G 125th Anniversary Celebration

August 27, 2021 - August 29, 2021 | All Day

Help us celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Edna G! The Edna G tugboat worked the Great Lakes more than a century ago and is now preserved as a museum ship. Edna G was built by the Cleveland Shipbuilding Company in 1896 for the Duluth and Iron Range and she was named for the daughter of J. L. Greatsinger, president of the railroad.

The Friends of Edna G group are honoring the tugboat’s 125-year history this August with a weekend-long celebration in Two Harbors.
