2011 marks the bicentennial of an event that changed the course of history. In 1811, Nicholas Roosevelt did what many thought impossible: he successfully guided a steamboat up and down the length of the Ohio River, a major feat for the time.
The Rivers Institute at Hanover College has partnered with the Belle of Louisville and the Belle of Cincinnati for an educational celebration of the steamboat bicentennial. Join us for a cruise up and down the Ohio River, special charters and a steamboat race!
