The Filson Historical Society is proud to present Filson Fridays. This is an opportunity to meet our staff as they share the results of their research in The Filson Collections. We welcome you to enjoy this summer programming every Friday at noon. On August 5, Dr. Mark Wetherington, Director of The Filson Historical Society, will how the advent of steamboats and the steam engine sparked an industrial revolution.

2011 marks the bicentennial of steamboat navigation on the Ohio River. The arrival of the steam engine brought not only a new form of transportation to the Ohio Valley, but it introduced the new technology to many industries connected to steamboat manufacture. From sawmills to furniture factories, the advent of steamboats impacted all the falls communities, changing the way that people traveled and the landscape through which they traveled.

This lecture will begin at noon at The Filson Historical Society. There is no cost for this event, though reservations are suggested. You may reserve your seat by visiting www.filsonhistorical.org or by calling The Filson at (502) 635-5083.
