There are some new additions to check out at the Historic Fort Steuben.

"From Canoes to Showboats: A Century of Change" is a new exhibit at the Steubenville Visitor Center.

With new educational panels, models, and videos, the exhibit gives an overview of the Ohio River in history, the development of river transportation, and its impact on Steubenville.

The fort has had a very small display on steamboats in the past, but with the help from Ohio Humanities and a research intern, the visitor center was able to grow its collection.

“We thought it would be nice to expand it,” said Judy Bratton from Historic Fort Steuben. “So this year we've added some panels of information giving history of the river and different kinds of boats that were up and down the river. And then the development of the steamboats, which are still so attractive to people.”

There will be a special open house at 6 p.m., at the Historic Fort Steuben for visitors to check out the new display.
