American Queen due back in city next week

Published 11:10 am Tuesday, November 20, 2012

The American Queen, which docked in the city Saturday for the first time since the summer, is due back at City Front next week.

The American Queen Steamboat Co. schedule indicates the boat will be in the city Nov. 29 and again on Dec. 4.

After a three-year absence, the Queen docked at City Front on April 18. Then, low water in the Mississippi River and the Yazoo Diversion Canal prevented it from further visits until June when the boat docked at LeTourneau.
