A Great Lakes mystery is now solved after crews discovered a 115-year-old shipwreck on the floor of Lake Superior.

A three-masted schooner, "The Nelson", sunk in May of 1899 during a storm.

It went down off the coast of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The ship's captain was the only survivor, nine others, including the captain's wife and infant child died.

Crews recently discovered the shipwreck using sonar and underwater cameras.

Most of the ship was still intact.
