Century Old Showboat Unable to Raise Funds

St. Louis (AP) — A grounded Mississippi River showboat that has sat idle for more than a decade appears to have taken its last voyage. The nonprofit Historic Riverboat Preservation Association says it’s been unable to raise enough money to resurrect the 106-year-old Goldenrod Showboat. It has been in storage since 2003 on the Illinois River in Calhoun County.
