Statement of Significance (as of designation - July 6, 1992):
Designed by Frank E. Kirby (who also designed Columbia), Ste. Claire was launched at Toledo Shipbuilding Company in 1910, and entered service later that year as part of the fleet operated by the Detroit & Windsor Ferry Company. For 81 years, this vessel carried passengers to Bois Blanc (Bob-Lo) Island, a record of service on a single run unequalled in U.S. maritime history.

Condition:
The boat has been purchased and moved to Toledo, Ohio, where it is undergoing rehabilitation.
