Default "Specks from the Deck" of the Howard Museum

Work resumed today on our pilothouse replica in the backyard. The nameboards were installed, along with the pipe which will support the whistle. A slot is being cut into the floor to accomodate the authentic 8' pilotwheel.

Capt. Jamie Donohue came by and donated eleven framed photos, of the DELTA QUEEN, DELTA KING, MISSISSIPI QUEEN, ferry boat HENRY WATTERSON and one of the 1928 race between the AMERICA and the CINCINNATI.

The Kentucky Derby Museum has borrowed a steamboat model from the HSM for a year long exhibition entitled "Urban Bourbon".

Work is progressing on cleaning and re-filing (in new acid free folders) many records from the Steamboat Inspection Service, from the Capt. C.W. Stoll Collection.

Our photo magician, Jimmy Reising, is working at scanning numerous photos of the Howard family, many from Clyde Howard's scrapbook.

Workmen are making headway on the restoration of the laundry house, being funded by our capital campaign fund.

As I was closing up this evening, I looked out a second floor window just as a new barge slid down the ways at Jeffboat and made a BIG splash!

Always something going on at the Howard Steamboat Museum!
