Buckhannon: Then & Now – Excursion Boat

Buckhannon: Then and Now. Join us in showcasing Upshur County throughout history and today.

Remember the excursion boat we showcased just a few weeks ago? Here is the boat in ACTION! The “Flora Hughes” riverboat was named in honor of Draper Camden Hughes wife. This was a pleasure riding boat on the weekends along the Buckhannon River, near the modern day “Poe Bridge”.
