Default The "Landing Whistle" has blown!

Despite the heat, the steamboating exhibit has enjoyed very good attendance by an appreciative public the past few days -- and we had visitors right up until the 4PM closing time today, the final day of the exhibition. THANKS to ALL who visited the display and to those who attended the engaging talk about the ROBT. E. LEE / NATCHEZ race by Travis Vasconcelos this past week for the Floyd County Historical Society meeting. It's been fun to co-curate and host the exhibit and now it's time to dismantle it and return all the wonderful artifacts to their owners. Already in the works are plans for an even bigger steamboat exhibit to celebrate New Albany's bicentennial in 2013. All of these events, great and small, go a long way in preserving and promoting our river heritage.

The STEAMBOAT A COMIN' display (identical to the one we had in New Albany) will remain open (free of charge) in the Howard Steamboat Museum carriage house until August 31st.
