It did not happen. They built it and they did not come. But Quinsippi Island remains.
It is a challenge for the boaters after a long day on the hot river. Just before the bridge there is the home of the Great River Sky Club.
They put on weekly shows. It has been years since I have seen a show. At that time it was fun show with lots of trick skiing and acrobatic moves.
Also, there is an antique car collection in one of the buildings before the bridge. At one time they asked my father if he would put his 1931 Chevrolet car in the car exhibit, but he declined.
Now the primary purpose of the island is access to the two marinas. This is the lesser of the two as the main marina is a closed marina with limited access.
The Mormon also crossed the river here while on their way west.
Next to the plague is this sign for Adams Landing. It is a collection of log buildings that were moved to the island as part of the effort to build up Quinsippi Island.
It is a pretty area and is a special place for Cindy and me.
There is a trail to the river.
It is about 200 yards long winding through a wooded area, then a brushy area before opening on to the river.
Looking north you see the railroad bridge...and south..
You see Quincy's river front and bridges.
Meanwhile, back at the cabins ....
It's Tony Orlando and Farrah Fawcett!
No it's Ken and Cindy. We were married in front of the Lord's Cabin in 1981!
With love KP!
