Rocheport hopes to raise money to house replica of keelboat
June 1, 2007 | 12:00 a.m. CDTThe Missouri Department of Conservation chose Rocheport as the new home of a replica keelboat. The keelboat commemorates the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Rocheport, which sits on the banks of the Missouri River, was a natural fit for the boat. The town was a stopover for Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their journey up the Missouri River and was the subject of a journal entry by the explorers. The Friends of Rocheport Society will hold a fundraiser on June 16 to raise money for a shelter to house the boat.
