The Lottie Cooper was launched by Rand & Burger Shipyard of Manitowoc, WI, 30 Mar 1876 and was named for the daughter of one of the original owners. The vessel was 131 feet long, 27 feet wide, 9 feet in depth of hold, and measured 250 gross tons. She represents a historic period when thousands of commercial wooden sail and steam vessels worked the dangerous waters of the Great Lakes. The 19th-century lake schooner was the 18-wheeler semitrailer truck of its day, and the Grate Lakes was its super highway.

In April of 1896 the three-masted schooner Lottie Cooper was wrecked just off Sheboygan, Wisconsin, in a roaring gale. The wreckage was found buried in Sheboygan Harbor during the construction of the Harbor Marina. The wreckage was recovered and is now on display on Sheboygan's lake front.
