Currently located in the Kansas City River Market and City Market is a hidden treasure. Well not exactly hidden any more, David Hawley and his family and a few close friends set out to find a sunken treasure and did they ever!
In 1856 the Arabia set out on the Missouri River, the longest river in the United States, which was full of snags. Trees along the river banks were cut down to fuel the steamboats but stumps were left to die and fall into the river causing snags. The Arabia was just one among about 400 other ships that was claimed by the Missouri River for various reasons.
The Steamboat Arabia Museum has been a huge asset to our community helping us step back experience not only what was on the ship back over 100 years ago but through time as it was discovered and the preservation process.
However their work is not done! They are still cleaning and preserving, which will take about 10 years. As well as researching and finding more sunken steamboats. Which leads to the creation of the National Steamboat Museum. You can find out more about that here!
