This replica steamboat was demolished in July 2008 after it deteriorated beyond repair. It was built in 1981-83 to replace the original Julius C. Wilkie steamboat which burned to the ground at this same spot in March 1981.

Both the original and the replica boat served as a steamboat museum and hosted various parties, weddings, and gatherings. The replica was closed to the public in 2006 for safety reasons. Efforts to raise enough money to repair the boat stalled, and the city council eventually voted to demolish it.
