Following the usual pattern of river town development, steamboating was essential for Mankato, from its founding in 1852 until the arrival of the first railroad in 1868.

During the heyday of steamboating at Mankato, boats based at St. Paul carried settlers and provisions upstream. Down river boats usually transported wheat and passengers.

The Anthony Wayne Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution dedicates this plaque in observance of their 100 years of service to the nation, September 18, 1999.
