Doullut Steamboat House
Captain Milton Doullut was a riverboat pilot who built the first steamboat house in 1875. Steamboats were a major source of cargo and passenger transportation on the Mississippi river in the 19th century. The Doullut steamboat house resembles traditional water-going steamboats with porthole-style windows, upper and lower galleries, and ironwork trim.
Fun Fact: Doullut's son built a twin steamboat house on the same street.
