The Cedar Lake Historical Association presents the Dewey Line Experience at The Museum at Lassen's Resort in Cedar Lake, Indiana. Steam through history as we highlight the history of Lassen's Resort, from its 1896 founding with a single steamboat that ferried passengers from the Monon rail depot to all points around the lake, through its bustling years as a summer getaway. Our signature experience is a cruise aboard "Steamer Dewey," an authentic steamboat (c. 1915), where Cedar Lake history comes alive as you discover the science behind steam power.
Your steamboat ticket includes same-day admission to The Museum at Lassen's Resort to experience the Story of Cedar Lake exhibit gallery.
The steamboat operates on Wednesdays only from June 14th through September 27th. The Monon Route is a 20-minute ride for $15 per person. The Premium Route is a 45-minute ride for $35/adult or $30/child (under age 13). The schedule is:
Note: The steamboat is not handicap accessible. A dockside steam demonstration can be scheduled.
