Lost Superior

This documentary looks back at the storied history of the first city of the Twin Ports, Superior Wisconsin. Native peoples and fur traders knew it to be a fertile landscape. It was here that explorers, making their way North and West, found shallow waters in a bay at the mouth of the Nemadji River and determined to put in a townsite they hoped would grow to rival Chicago.
