St. Charles History Museum Riverboat Exhibit
In Pottawatomie Community Center
Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the paddlewheel riverboats! This recreational activity that has spanned generations began in 1945 when the late Chet Anderson bought his first riverboat to charter cruises up and down the Fox River. Docked off Pottawatomie Park, the riverboat cruises became a family business for more than 70 years. When Chet Anderson’s son, Rich Anderson, retired in 2019, the St. Charles Park District purchased the business and continues to carry on its legacy. To view the promotional video: click here
