Default Interesting, but a correction

At the end: there is another surviving steam sternwheel towboat, the LONE STAR, which is in LeClaire Iowa as part of the Buffalo Bill Museum. She was the last operating steam sternwheel towboat on the Upper Miss, being retired in 1966. You can climb about her inside a building put up recently to protect her, and there are other towboat related items on display in this building.
