See some of the ships that have visited Erie, PA’s bayfront over the years: Christine’s Chronicles

The lake port city of Erie, PA has seen its share of waterfaring vessels over the centuries. Here is a glimpse at some of those nautical visitors.

It’s winter 2019 and the “Presque Isle” is docked at the Erie bay front amid ice chunks as Presque Isle Bay’s winter icing melts.

It’s 1986, and the “Presque Isle” is docked next to the former grain elevator site at the Erie Bayfront in 1986. Although it probably was not loading up on grain, its position illustrates how ships may have received grain from this once bustling site in the past.

The Michipicoten dwarfs the cars parked next to it on the east side of Erie, PA’s downtown bayfront area.

“New York” and “Rhode Island” look like friendly tugboats as they sit side-by-side amid ice chunks on Erie’s east bayfront.
