Kimmswick, Missouri (KMOV.com)-Boosters in the Mississippi River city, just south of St. Louis, hope Sunday marks the beginning of a new chapter in economic opportunities.

The Duchess of the United States, one of America’s leading riverboat cruises, anchored at Kimswick, 30 minutes from St. Louis at 3:15 am. The ship departed in Louisville, Kentucky and anchored in several cities, including Kimswick, before continuing its voyage to Alton, Illinois. Eventually it ends in Minnesota.

A riverboat crossing the Mississippi River, which stops in this quaint town, carried passengers 125 years ago. Mayor Phil Stang said the return of paddle boats is important to the city.

“In 1859, the city was founded on a river,” said Mayor Phil Stan. “Our plan is [to go] Please return to the river where it should be. ”

Missouri representative Dan Shaul echoes Stan and attracts tourists to see the charm of Jefferson County and the beauty of the Mississippi River. Tourists are greeted by the sounds of Windsor High School bands and members of the Missouri Historical Society.
