Senator John Heinz History Center - FIELD OF DREAMS The Heinz History Center did its part to reveal some historical gold during the opening exhibit party for “Pittsburgh’s Lost Steamboat: Treasures of the Arabia.” More than 450 guests were in attendance during the April 24 event, which was hosted by Nadine Bognar. One of the many highlights included behind-the-scenes tours led by HHC prez Andy Masich, lead curator Leslie Przybylek, and members of the Hawley and Mackey families (both of whom were lead excavators of the steamboat Arabia). Built in Brownsville, Pa. and Pittsburgh in 1853, the Steamboat travelled extensively to frontier towns along the Ohio, Mississippi, and Missouri Rivers before sinking in the Missouri River in 1856 after hitting a tree snag. To the delight of history buffs, the Steamboat was discovered 130 years later, buried 45-feet below a Kansas cornfield. The exhibit, which runs through January 2015, features an awesome array of nearly 2,000 objects that were painstakingly preserved. Pictured are Andy Masich and David Hawley.
