      EVENT DETAILS
      The Carrie B.

      At the Iberville Museum, a new exhibit highlights the steamboat Carrie B. Schwing, including an authentic model, Captain Philo Marionneaux's daily ledger, photographs and documents. The steamboat was owned by the Schwing Lumber and Shingle Co. Built to tow cypress logs to the lumber mill, the Carrie B. became a fixture in Iberville Parish life. Beginning service in 1904, the Carrie B. was the first boat to pass through the Plaquemine Locks, and continued serving as a tow boat and excursion boat until sinking in 1946. "A Human Interest Look at the Carrie B." written by James "Fry" Hymel, Captain Marionneaux's grandson, is now available at the Iberville Museum for further reading on the life and times of the Carrie B. Schwing. The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday. 57735 Main Street. $2 admission. (225) 687-7197.
