Arabia Steamboat Story


The Sidewheel Steamer Arabia sank in 1836 and lay untouched for nearly 150 years until it was discovered 45 feet under a corn field,. The site, which traces its history, provides an excellent look at 19th-Century life in the U.S., especially as it emphasizes the boat's cargo: French perfume, guns, buttons, bells, and 400 bottles of good whiskey; all items that the frontier towns were eagerly awaiting but which never arrived.
