LBJ Library Project and Photos - Austin, Texas

Click photos below to enlarge / Use your Back Button to return to this page.

In January of 2002 Mr.. Keelboat (Butch Bouvier) and his nephew Bob Kreeger delivered a scale model of the Lewis and Clark expedition  keelboat to the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin Texas. This is a 2" = 1' model which is over 9 ft long. The model along with a model dugout constructed by Butch will play a major role in the Expedition exhibit which will show at the Library through August of 2003. At the end of the Exhibit, the model will be donated to the new Lewis and Clark visitors center at Lewis and Clark State Park in Onawa, Iowa.
