Built in 1849, the Buckeye State was the fastest steamboat on the Ohio River. Traveling from Cincinnati to Pittsburg in 43 hours with 200 people aboard throughout the 1800s, the boat was acclaimed by a Pittsburgh newspaper editor as the “the greatest convenience… ever afforded the citizens on the banks of the Upper Ohio.”
Today, doors from the Buckeye State grace the entrance of a wine room in a four-bedroom, three-bath lake home on Lake Norman in Denver, North Carolina. The two-inch thick, birch doors have never been refurbished and are genuine to their original form adding an exquisite historic detail to this lake property.
