The Unthinkable MOUNTAIN LILY

Record #:
Once advertised as the “highest steam line in the world” the Mountain Lily was constructed to carry 100 passengers and cargo down part of the French Broad River between Brevard and Ashville. For Four years the steamboat carried passengers and cargo between Hendersonville and Brevard; and was host to several parties before it ran aground for the last time. There is no evidence that it ever made it to Ashville.
