The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
N. Mills (Propeller), 10 Sep 1870

Full Text

On Saturday last at Marysville a new barge was launched named the N. MILLS which has been building for some time past. The new craft is built for the lumber trade by Messrs. N. & B. Mills of Marysville and Henry McMorran of Port Huron. The dimensions are as follows: Length on keel, 160 feet; overall, 170 feet; beam, 30 feet; depth of hold 11 feet. The measurements will not be far from 350 tons and cost about $10,000. The barge is most substantially built and fitted for the reception of an engine which will be put in during the winter. During this fall she will be used for towing. It is not impossible should the inducement be flattering that the new barge should be put in the ore carrying trade next season instead of lumber freighting. She was expected up yesterday to have her spar put in.
