Step into the Steamboat Era with a tour of the Howard Steamboat Museum. This beautiful 1894 home was built by, premier steamboat builders, the Howards of Jeffersonville. The Howard Steamboat Museum features original furnishings, brass chandeliers, stained glass windows, intricate carvings throughout and even a grand staircase!

Master craftsmen, from the shipyard, created much of the decor in the mansion. Howard built steamboats included, the luxurious J.M. White (featured to the left), the speedy City of Louisville and the popular Indiana. Models, photographs, paintings, half-hull models and other artifacts abound at this unique Jeffersonville museum.

The Howard Steamboat Museum is open year round. Personal, informative tours are offered.
