The world’s last Edwardian (TITANIC era) passenger steamship KEEWATIN was underway to her new home last Friday 28th April, 2023.

She was built in 1907 by the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Company of Glasglow, Scotland as yard number 453. She was one of 3,800 similar ships built from 1900 to 1920 and is the same type of ship as the Titanic, built in 1912.

KEEWATIN is a passenger ship that once sailed between Port Arthur/Fort William (now Thunder Bay) on Lake Superior and Port McNicoll on Georgian Bay (Lake Huron) in Ontario, Canada. She carried passengers between these ports for the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Great Lakes steamship service.
The ship’s new home will be at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes at Kingston, after she was donated to the museum by the ship’s longtime owners. She will receive around $2 million in restorations and repairs before opening to the public, tentatively scheduled for spring of 2024.
Once in service the ship had 108 staterooms with berths for 288 passengers and was manned by 86 officers and crew
