On Saturday, January 13, the Blindness Low Vision Experience will be the highly acclaimed Arabia Steamboat Museum tour, admission price, only $5.50. The legend of the Steamboat Arabia is a blend of two stories. One begins many years ago on the West bank of the Mississippi River in the bustling waterfront of St. Louis, Missouri. It was here, in the year 1856, over 200 tons of winters supplies was loaded aboard the Arabia for delivery to the western frontier, nearly 1,000 dangerous miles up the mighty Missouri River. The second is a younger story. Its telling describes the efforts of a family and friends who went in search of the Arabia’s riches and found instead a time capsule so immense and so remarkably preserved they would dedicate themselves to preserving the treasures for future generations to see and enjoy.
