Event Functions

Function Cost To Attend
Name: (1) Thursday Spirit of Jefferson Riverboat Dinner Cruise

The Spirit of Jefferson's journey began in 1963. She was built in Iowa by the Dubuque Boat and Boiler Company for Streckfus Steamers of St. Louis, Missouri. The boat cruised out of New Orleans as the Mark Twain from 1963 to 1970. After that, she made her way up the Mississippi River to St. Louis. There, she was renamed the Huck Finn. For 25 years, she offered dinner and sightseeing cruises from just below the St. Louis Arch.

In December of 1995, after a three year search for the right riverboat, Jefferson County Judge/Executive David L. Armstrong found and purchased the Huck Finn.

The following year, Judge Armstrong's office conducted a contest to rename the boat, and more than 3,000 entries were received. The Huck Finn became the Spirit of Jefferson in April of 1996. Her name honors her home county and the great Thomas Jefferson.

Along with the historic Steamer Belle of Louisville, the Spirit is owned by Louisville Metro Government and operated by the Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation. With her charm, spunk, and flexibility, the Spirit of Jefferson makes for wonderful memories along the Ohio River. She has the look and feel of an old-time steamboat, with the modern conveniences of heat, air conditioning, and more.

Join her for a journey, and see for yourself!
