Default "Streckfus Stuff"

Since today in steamboat history marks the anniversary of the death in 1925 of Commodore John Streckfus at St. Louis, it's a good day to announce an upcoming program focusing upon the famous steamboat line.

The "River Ramblings" series at the Howard Steamboat Museum will feature Judy Patsch, presenting "Rise and Shine for the Streckfus Line" - A Journey on the Ohio and Missisippi Rivers with a Steamboating Dynasty on Saturday, June 28th at 3:00 PM.

This information is already posted on the museum website at Mark your new 2008 calendars now and plan to join us!

Herewith is a small sampling of the vast fleet of Streckfus steamboats. The first image is the sternwheel J.S., named for Capt. John Streckfus and built at the Howard Shipyard in 1901. The second view is the SENATOR, formerly the SAINT PAUL, upbound under the bridge (now replaced) at Marietta, Ohio. The third photo is the same boat in earlier times.

Curator Keith

P.S. Besides being the speaker, Judy will provide her cookies as usual!
