Artifacts from the steamboat Arabia are on loan to a Pittsburgh museum

It marks the first time that owners of the Arabia Steamboat Museum in the City Market have let this many pieces of their collection escape at one time. But it’s appropriate, they say. After all, the side-wheel steamer was built in Pittsburgh and Brownsville, Pa., three years before it sank near Kansas City. And many of the items in the 200 tons of cargo were manufactured in western Pennsylvania.
