You’ll Never Guess What Was Unearthed From This Sunken Steamboat In Missouri

Do you remember as a kid trying to search for treasure? Maybe this meant digging up holes in your backyard or scanning a metal detector along the beach. Imagine your surprise if you were to find a buried steamboat from the 1800s. Well, that’s basically what happened when an excavator and his family unearthed what is considered to one of the greatest discoveries in Missouri history.
