The arrival of the New Orleans at the Falls of the Ohio in 1811 ushered in a new era of transportation technology - steamboats. Although often viewed as romantic symbols of Victorian America, steamboats and the application of steam engines to a wide variety of manufacturing establishments linked to steamboat production (lumber mills, furniture factories, foundries, etc.) introduced the industrial revolution to the Falls of the Ohio. This lecture explores some of the people and places involved in the rise of a steamboat industrial complex in the communities that encircled the Falls, 1811-1861. Bring your own lunch, drinks are provided. Registration required (812-944-7336). Sponsored by the Carnegie Center, Inc.
