Sails and Rails
City of Midland #41 moored in Kewaunee Harbor

These words capture the earlier transportation system of the Great Lakes region.  Formerly a means of shipping, sails are now found on yachts and pleasure craft.  The rails too have lost their place in Kewaunee.  Their final appearance in Kewaunee was on November 3, 1993.  Nature trails may have replaced them, but many still remember their sounds that warned of their approach.
