Towboat AMERICA - Wood Model Collectible

Posted 03-23-2012 at 09:48 AM by Rex Stewart
Rare in the collectible world of steamboats are sidewheel models that depict the early American towboats of the 19th century. AMERICA was one such vessel that I researched and found to be an interesting build with an interesting history.

Searching for any info of when reynolds ran cattle in colorado in the 1880s with the diamond jo cattlr brand. Our museum has the brand but little info. supposedly reynolds brought up longhorns from texas and took a big loss in 1884 due to the harsh winter. his foreman was reportedly john morrissey.
