Two weeks from today, Adam and I will be in Point Pleasant WV for an event at the Point Pleasant River Museum. There will be a dedication ceremony and reception honoring the memory of Captain Nelson Jones at 2 p.m. The new,upgraded pilothouse simulator in the museum will be named in Jones' honor

Meanwhile, Ingram Barge Co. and AmherstMadison will have the towboat O. Nelson Jones open for pubglic tours from noon to 5 p.m.

We've had several photos of the O. Nelson Jones on here before, both under its present name and under its previous name the Pennsylvania.
