Atlantic Huron will load taconite

The Atlantic Huron should arrive today to load taconite at the DM&IR Dock in West Duluth. She was first called the Prairie Harvest. She took her present name in 1989 but lost it in 1994 when it became the Melvin H. Baker. In 1998, it again became the Atlantic Huron. That name reflects the boat’s ability to venture out into the Atlantic Ocean, a place most lake boats never visit.
