Showboat Majestic

The Showboat Majestic is on the National Register of Historic Places and the last of the original traveling showboats. The boat got its start in 1923 in Pittsburgh and would travel the rivers with performances. Over the years the boat found its way to one town or another before permanently arriving in Cincinnati in 1967. Because of waterway regulations, the boat no longer travels the river but is now permanently docked on the landing in Cincinnati. There are still performances on the showboat and it gives local actors an opportunity and a venue to perform. The rich history of the boat and the shows are worth checking out.
