Mission Hill Cemetery sits on a hill near Bay Mills overlooking Spectacle Lake and Lake Superior. It is an old and historic cemetery and in the middle is a white picket fence. Buried inside are the remains of eight crew members of the S.S. Myron. The steamer sank in a storm in November of 1919 near Whitefish Point. The crew escaped in lifeboats but unfortunately, the little boats did not save their lives. Eight bodies were found onshore encased in ice during the spring of 1920. The crewmen were buried in Mission Hill Cemetery spending eternity together. The captain who stayed with the ship was saved while floating on a piece of wreckage.
There a beautiful overlook across from the entrance to the cemetery. It is a beautiful spot to watch the ships sail past or take in a sunset.
