History on the water – the Belle of Louisville

by The 100 Companies

“Your true pilot cares nothing about anything on earth but the river, and his pride in his occupation surpasses the pride of kings.” – Mark Twain

Docked on a wharf along the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky, lies a living museum, the Belle of Louisville. On the Belle, you too can experience the world of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

A National Historic Landmark, the Belle was built in 1914 and is the only remaining steamboat from that era. A cruise on the Belle is a one-of-a-kind chance to experience the world of river steamboats that Mark Twain so famously loved.
