MODEL OF FAMOUS RIVERBOATS

 
Delta Queen
 


The legendary National Historic Landmark Delta Queen has been at home on the Mississippi River system since 1947. Lovingly preserved and maintained, she's an echo from the Great Steamboat Era. The Delta Queen was bought and went through the Panama Canal to the Mississippi in the late 1940s.

Robert E. Lee

Newspapers of the day reckoned that millions of dollars were wagered on the outcome of the New Orleans- to-St. Louis race, which attracted international attention. The Lee’s three-day, 18-hour, and 14-minute victory was an upset for the favored title holder, the Natchez.

Clermont Steamboat

 


On Aug. 17, 1807,
from the shoreline of the Hudson River, spectators witnessed a shocking sight.  There in the river was a mechanical monster spewing flames and smoke.  It was 'Mr. Fulton's Folly'! Most of the people all thought the steam thingy would blow up and explode to the high heavens or roll over like a log that would sink fast...

Baragoola was the most popular Manly ferry, this was evidenced by the massive turnout for her farewell trip in 1983 when she was so loaded that passengers where on the top wheelhouse deck (normally not allowed.)  She was known by her masters as an excellent ocean-going vessel.

King of Mississippi

 


Riverboats were jacks of all trades. They served as the lifeline for cotton and inland trade, towed barges and ferried railroad trains across the river. As passenger boats, they helped to shrink the vastness of America, and as showboats, they made that vastness a little less lonely.  SOLD OUT.

 
The American Queen


The biggest Sternwheeler ever built plies its trade on the Mississippi River-complete with old fashioned calliope tunes and Riverboat gamblers.

Southern Belles
 


The Southern Belle was built to move a long string of barges in shallow rivers.  Although known as a tow boat the Southern Belle was lashed tight to the last barge in the string and pushed the barges wherever they went.  This method of transportation is very inexpensive.
