A model replica of the Stern Wheel Steam Ship "Red River" went on display in June, 2009.
The ship model was built by master modeler Richard Guidroz of Pineville, La.
The boat, "Red River," was in service on the Red River and Mississippi from the early
1900s to the 1920s.
During that time period the river here at Alexandria was a busy
port for transporting cotton, livestock and supply's to the small towns and to New
Orleans, Baton Rouge and Natchez, Mississippi.
