Remembering A Riverman

The Waterways Journal
13 February 2012

Museum director Jack Fowler reports that the new pilothouse simulator at the Point Pleasant River Museum was to be dedicated in honor of Capt. Nelson Jones on Sunday, February 12. Widely respected by all who were privileged to know him, Nelson is much missed by his countless friends in the river industry. He did numerous deeds to preserve and promote river history, and this new interactive exhibit is a fitting tribute to an outstanding and consummate riverman who will long be remembered for his exemplary work ethic and kindness to all.
