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.
