This steamer was first named the Lora, then the Alice Stafford. She was renamed the Manistee and was being retrofitted at Johnston Brothersâ€™ dock in Ferrysburg when she burned on Spring Lake early on the morning of June 24, 1914. No cause for the blaze was found. The loss was nearly $200,000 and two of the crew were injured. The Manistee broke away from the dock as she burned and drifted to a sandbar near the Savidge Landing, where she sank.
