Ms. Pennington tells this story for all ages, of Lake Michigan's Christmas Tree Ship which was the Rouse Simmons. This 205-ton, three-masted schooner brought holiday evergreens to the citizens of Chicago each Christmas season before it was caught in the "Great Storm of 1912" and sank, fully loaded with trees. This program is free but a confirmation call of attendance is encouraged.
