It would have been quite an adventure to ride the steamship on the river.Course I am sure there was risks also. Smile Bluebird

The Cherokee

Post  Admin on Sat Jun 27, 2009 11:43 pm

The Cherokee was a wel-known steamship that came up the Arkansas River to Arkansas City. It was built by a Mr. Seymour and a Mr. McClaskey from Bolton Township in 1878. It was ready to travel by January 1879, but they had to wait for the rivers to make the trip to Arkansas. This boat was one of the boats that broke way for other Steamers to travel up the Arkansas River.
