River Industry

The Mississippi River provides an abundant supply of sand to Cape Girardeau. This great resource has enhanced the community's ability to construct such large concrete projects as the A.C. Brase Arena Building, the Common Pleas Courthouse steps, Interstate 55, the Emerson Bridge, and the Mississippi River flood-wall. The towboat pictured was owned by the C.W. "Woody" Rushing family and named for Woody's wife, Evelyn Rushing. Captain Woody, one of the great modern river captains, stands watch on the bridge.

Panel Sponsor:
Mike Rushing
This panel is dedicated to the memory and honor of C. W. "Woody" Rushing, Evelyn L. Rushing, and to all those hardworking people who made their living working on the rivers of this great nation.
