The Steamboat in a Cornfield:
The Missouri River Packet ARABIA
On September 5, 1856 the steamboat “Arabia” struck a log and sunk while traveling up the Missouri River.  It disappeared from time but rumors of treasure on board persisted into the twentieth century.  In 1988, treasure hunters decided to find the “Arabia” and recover the treasure.  Over the course of one winter they located, excavated and salvaged the wreck.  The “treasure” they recovered was very different from what they anticipated.  This program will examine the type of “treasure” found and the results of the effort.
