Additional Details:
The USS Niagara was used by the government as a receiving ship at Erie until 1818 when she was abandoned and sank in Misery Bay. It was raised and restored in 1913 for the centennial celebration of Oliver Hazard Perry's victory on Lake Erie, which too place September 10th. It is at the present time in the process of semi-repair, state appropriation of funds for this purpose having been exhausted, and is anchored at Presque Isle State Park Peninsula
