UPDATE on the Str. MAMIE S. BARRETT:

Earlier this week I was contacted at the Howard Steamboat Museum by the daughter of the late owner of the property where the MAMIE has been beached (since 1994) in a cutoff of the Mississippi River at Deer Park, Louisiana.

Anyone interested in acquiring the derelict riverboat is invited to contact:

The MAMIE S. BARRETT was built at the Howard Shipyard in 1921 and was later renamed PENNIMAN by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Retired in 1948, the sternwheeler served as a boat club/restaurant at West Alton, Missouri; Eddyville, Kentucky and Vicksburg, Mississippi.
