MHM determined which anomalies would be investigated from an analysis of sonar data that suggested they were submerged cultural resources. Each anomaly was assigned a number upon its recognition as a possible site. Using data...

In relation to the Red Mill Wreck, the main objective was to locate what MHM believed to be the bow of the wreck and...

MHM located eight dugout canoes in Minnesota museums or historical societies and received permission from those institutions to document them. Seven of the eight artifacts had not undergone radiocarbon testing and MHM received permission to take small wood samples from the canoes for dating purposes. MHM measured,...

MHM confirmed the existence of the Red Mill Wreck in September 2012 and documented part of the archaeological site then. In late August 2013 MHM returned to the Red Mill Wreck site to open new test trenches in order to expose new sections of the wreck associated with the portions documented in 2012. This report is a summary of MHM's findings. This report is copyrighted to Ann Merriman, Christopher Olson, and Maritime Heritage Minnesota.

The purpose of the Lake Minnetonka Nautical Archaeology 2 Project was to determine the nature of specific anomalies and one wreck site. MHM prioritized which anomalies – potential nautical or underwater archaeological sites – and one wreck site located during the LMS-1 and 2 surveys that deserved priority attention for further research in Lake Minnetonka. MHM determined the list from an analysis of sites and anomalies that were deemed the most historically and archaeologically significant,...

Maritime Heritage Minnesota (MHM) conducted a side and down-imaging sonar survey of Lake Waconia in August 2012 as part of the White Bear Lake and Lake Waconia Survey Project. Prior to this survey, no nautical or maritime archaeological sites had been identified in Lake Waconia. MHM noted 46 anomalies during the Lake Waconia Survey that appeared to be human-made objects that warranted further investigation. This report presents the findings of the Lake Waconia Nautical Archaeology 1 Project...

In addition, the Hennepin County Water Patrol (HCWP) partnered with MHM to visually record two wrecks that served as test subjects for their newly acquired Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV).

USS Essex was designed by the North American shipbuilder Donald McKay. McKay is widely recognized as the premier shipwright and designer in 19th Century America. His fast clipper ships broke all speed records during the mid-19th Century and his ship Flying Cloud held the speed record from New York to San Francisco around Cape Horn from 1851-1989. USS Essex was the last ship McKay designed and constructed. Her keel was laid in 1874 and she was launched in 1876 as one of the last class of...
