"Ride the Day Line...in 1949!" Hosted by Wappingers Falls Historical Society

Come re-live the “Golden Age” of steamboating on the Hudson!

The program will feature the history of both steamboats on the Hudson River and the Hudson River Day Line Company. Attendees will be “on board” the Day Line steamboat “Robert Fulton” for the excursion from NYC to Poughkeepsie in 1949. The speaker will be Donald Ringwald (d. 1987- portrayed by Craig Marshall in uniform) who was bursar on the Day Line boats and author of books on steamboat history. After Don’s presentation featuring many vintage steamboat-related images, two short Hudson River historic films will be shown, one filmed onboard the “Robert Fulton” in 1949.
