The Columbus Steamboat Wharf, about 700 ft. from here, was used as a river boat landing for 111 years. 210 steamers arrived from Jan. 26, 1828 when the first steamer, the "Fanny" docked at the wharf until Apr. 1, 1939 when the "George W. Miller" arrived. There were 240 steamboat landings in the 360 miles from Columbus to Apalachicola, port city on the Gulf of Mexico. The Confederate gunboat, "Jackson," mounting six heavy naval cannon, built near the Columbus Wharf, was burned there by invading Federal forces, April 17, 1865. Afire, she floated several miles down the river and sank, burned to the waterline.
