Description

The Caloosa was one of many steamboats that operated along the St. Johns River during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Steamboats first appeared on the St. Johns in the 1860s. During the next several decades, the St. Johns River became Florida's first major tourist attraction for vacationing Northerners. The river became the state's first "highway", enabling homesteaders to move into the central part of the state. The steamboat era on the St. John's came to an end in the 1880s with the introduction of the Central Florida Railroad.
