Edna G. Tugboat
Waterfront Drive in the Marina
Two Harbors, Minnesota 55616
Voice: 218-834-4898

The Edna G. was the last coal-fed, steam-powered tugboat in operation on the Great Lakes. Built in 1896, the tugboat served Two Harbors, with the exception of being pressed into government service for two years during World War I. In 1974 she was designated a National Historic Site. She was fully restored in 1994 and is now open for guided tours. A trip down to the richly decorated captain's quarters, a visit to the engine room, crew quarters, galley and the pilot house will make this an experience you will long remember.
