Description: Capt. Eber B. Ward took over the building project started by an uncle and the steamer "Huron" was completed in 1852 at Marine City, Michigan. She ran a river route, burning cord wood. In 1855 Capt. Ward sold his vessels to his employees, one being A. E. Goodrich. The "Huron" was the first vessel of the large fleet to follow for the Goodrich Line. In 1856 she was placed on the Chicago-Milwaukee route, taking about 10 hours to make a single trip in one day, and the return trip the next day.
