Sadly, one of the smoke stacks has now fallen down. The Saloon is vacant as ever.

The adjacent Riverboat Saloon named itself after the boat, which was already there, and now seems to be a derelict.

Looks like it could use a good coat of paint. It's right next to "Roadside America Miniature Village," so stop and take a look.

Landlocked riverboat.

Riverboat Saloon - Beached Boat

I love the idea of a landlocked riverboat. The bar named after it just like any country bar, I peeked in but didn't stay. The antique store next door, however, has an amazing collection of vintage postcards.

Riverboat Saloon - Beached Boat

While visiting the Roadside America miniature village we stumbled upon this riverboat in the middle of a field (and next to the Riverboat Saloon). It appears to be an actual riverboat. The saloon was not open when we visited, so I was not able to get more information. Don't miss the neat antique shop located right next to the boat.
