From Practical to Posh: Steamboat: Travel in the Adirondacks
Through July 9, 2023
From the mid-19th century to the introduction of the automobile in the early 20th century, steamboats were an efficient way to transport goods and people. During this period, steamboat travel soared in popularity with summer tourists destined for remote locations, some accessible only by water. This new exhibit located in the Stoddard Gallery, highlights the popular travel method from Seneca Ray Stoddard’s point of view.
