In 1939, the Sons and Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen, America’s Riverboat Historical Society, was established in Marietta to celebrate the region’s substantial river history. Marietta is also home to the Great Mound, or Conus, built by the Mound Builders. The mound was preserved by the original pioneers and is contained within the Mound Cemetery, which is also home to the largest number of Revolutionary War officers buried in one location. Day 8: River Cruising Day 9: Pittsburgh, PA Pittsburgh is located at the confluence of three rivers. At one time a trading camp, it grew into a major manufacturing center, and served as the jumping-off point for the golden age of steamboat travel. Its Gilded Age sites, including the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, speak to its history as an early-20th-century industrial capital.
