African Queen


The African Queen vessel was created in 1912 and is on the American National Historic Register. Her boiler is custom made and is historically correct and her steam engine is from 1896. She was restored in 2012 and has to be meticulously maintained in order to preserve her.

All donations are greatly appreciated and will contribute towards her preservation for generations.
