The Admiral and the Robert E. Lee, ca. 1970


The Admiral and the Robert E. Lee, 20th century entertainment riverboats, were part of the St. Louis waterfront for decades. Although the Admiral spent much of its recent years as a moored stationary casino, it once plied the waters of the Mississippi as a streamlined dance hall.  The Admiral was scrapped in 2011 after the revocation of its casino license and the deterioration of its hull. The Robert E. Lee, a recreation of an earlier steamboat of the same name, was primarily a floating restaurant until its destruction by fire in 2010 while it awaited renovation as a restaurant in St. Charles on the Missouri.
