This week, the American Queen Steamboat Company announced a partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, pledging to make a corporate donation of five dollars to the National Trust for every river cruise booking.  They will also offer their guests the chance to make a matching donation.

Beginning June 30, 2013, the company will begin to promote the work of historic preservation professionals in both onboard and onshore demonstrations of preservation concepts and techniques.  Passengers aboard the American Queen will learn more about the National Trust’s National Treasure sites along the Mississippi River, as will those who sail in Pacific Northwest onboard their new ship, the American Empress, launching in April 2014.

Through this partnership, American Queen Steamboat Company will become a sponsor for four of the National Trust’s National Treasures: Mississippi Delta Heritage Area, Manhattan Project Historic Sites in Washington State, Willamette Falls Navigation Canal and Locks in Oregon, and an additional site, still unnamed.

The National Trust’s National Treasures sites across the national that are irreplaceable and seriously threatened locations where the National Trust for Historic Preservation invests their extensive resources and efforts. The organization takes targeted action to protect the sites and promote their history.
