11.04.10 Steamboats of the Hudson River


Two nice developments have recently emerged regarding efforts to preserve the SS Columbia, America’s oldest surviving passenger steamer. Author Bill Ewan writes about saving this National Historic Landmark Vessel in his new volume, Steamboats on the Hudson River, as part of the “Images of America” series published by Arcadia Publishing (available in regional bookstores).

Also, Boating on the Hudson features an article in their recent issue with interesting information about the SS Columbia.
