ST. LOUIS - The Casino Queen riverboat departed the East St. Louis waterfront today after 15 years as a Mississippi River casino. The four-story side-wheeler was purchased by Cedar Bay of Branson, Missouri, who plans to break ground on a new museum in Tennessee on November 13th. The company operates a Titanic museum in Branson.
Mr. John Joslyn, President and CEO of Cedar Bay, said "There's a lot of great space that captured my imagination. We haven't quite determined how we will use it. We have to consider city landscapes, look at all our options and talk with cities. But we are keeping the restaurant because it's a great facility."
The riverboat is moving 17 miles north to Mike's Dock in Hartford, Illinois, where it will be docked for winter before undergoing renovations.
