ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Officials with the old Delta Queen riverboat are expected to announce that they’ve chosen Kimmswick as the company’s headquarters.

The boat, built in 1927, is getting a multi-million dollar renovation before it can resume cruising.

It would also need an exemption from congress to allow a wood-hulled ship as a passenger vessel.
