George M. Verity River Museum

The steamboat George M. Verity pushed barges up and down the Mississippi River from 1927 to 1960. Today it sits on land in Keokuk, Iowa, where it serves as a museum. Our tour consisted of a guided tour of the lower deck followed by self-guided exploration of the rest of the boat. We enjoyed exploring this great example of an early 20th century steam-powered Mississippi River workhorse.
