Riverboatin' on the Little Kanawha
A Traveling Exhibit about the History of
Steamboats in West Virginia

Gary Coberly, the exhibit director, writes:

The exhibition traveled all over West Virginia this summer: Grantsville, Morgantown, Jackson's Mill, Parkersburg, and Elizabeth. The exhibit will be part of History Day at the State Capital Building in Charleston in late January, and Burnsville and Weston in May and June. The exhibit will continue to travel through summer 2004 to locations such Hurricane, Point Pleasant, Lewisburg, and Huntington.
