Circleville Fire Department Donation

J-me Braig receives a $500 donation from Caption Arron Kerns of the Circleville Fire Department. 
The donation is from their firefighter's association 

for the Museum's Queen of the Lake III, True Sternwheeler.

Captain Arron Kerns is our Captain for the Queen of the Lake II and is also going to Captain the Queen of the Lake III.

Arron’s passion for boating brought him to The Buckeye Lake Museum, as a volunteer in 2010. Special Thanks to Captain Kerns and all the members of the Circleville Fire Departmen

The Greater Buckeye Lake Historical Society​​​

History is repeating itself, do you want to be a part of it?   
The Queen of the Lake III Restoration project will begin 
with community and volunteers meetings. This sternwheeler will bring back hope and grace for the lake we love & that holds so much history. 
History fact:  Both of the past sternwheelers were built on Buckeye Lake 
and cruised her waters for 20 years.  

The Queen of the Lake III will follow that historic path as well. 

Send us your email address, so we can keep you up on the calendar dates
