Steamship William G. Mather Museum
1001 East 9th Street Pier
Cleveland, Ohio 44114
Voice: 216-574-6262

When her 618-foot long riveted steel hull was launched in 1925, the William G. Mather was among the largest vessels afloat. For the next 55 years, this grand lady of the Great Lakes carried millions of tons of iron ore, coal, and other bulk cargoes to Cleveland through some of the worst storms the Great Lakes could brew. This history earned her the nickname, "The Ship That Built Cleveland." Retired in 1980, the Mather underwent an extensive restoration to be preserved. Now a floating maritime museum in Cleveland's North Coast Harbor Park, the steamship chronicles the history of Great Lakes shipping and how she helped transform northeast Ohio into a great industrial center. Tours include her cavernous cargo holds, the most elegant dining room on the Lakes, her massive engine room, and the gleaming pilot house that towers five stories above North Coast Harbor.
