A.M. Phillips Wheeling Built Steamboat Model by John Bowman

A.M. Phillips
The 175 ton, stern-wheel steam-powered packet A.M. Phillips, was built in 1835 in Wheeling, Virginia for Arthur M. Phillips, Sr. The hull and superstructure was built at the James Pemberton yard and Elijah Murray completed the cabins (later known as the ‘Texas’) on the hurricane deck in 1836. The machinery; furnaces, boilers and engines were built at the A.M. Phillips shops in Wheeling. The A.M. Phillips was entered into the Wheeling-Cincinnati trade in April of 1836.
This model was especially built in 2013 by John Bowman for display at the 1831 A.M. Phillips house at 653 Main Street, Wheeling, West Virginia.
