Rumseian Society Inc

Rating: 0 stars   0 review 65


PO Box 1787 Shepherdstown WV 25443 USA


Rumsey lived in Shepherdstown, and could well be called our first engineer. The Society was formed in 1985 with the purpose of building a working replica of Rumsey's jet-propelled steamboat in time for the bicentennial of his demonstration in 1787. Since doing so, it has regularly demonstrated the boat, called The Rumseian Experiment, and built a boathouse/museum exhibiting the boat and describing Rumsey's life and work.
