The historic steamboat is rumored to be haunted by former Captain Ben Winters, who died on board of a heart attack, and possibly by other felled workers, one of whom was crushed to death when machinery was turned on by accident and one killed when the paddlewheel unexpectedly went into motion. Current employees say the ghostly occurrences happen in early morning hours.
