It will be a sad day for some folks in Marietta Wednesday as an historic showboat makes her way up the river to a new home in Pittsburgh.
The Becky Thatcher has spent the past several decades in the Muskingum River along the banks of Marietta.
Even though not much has been done with the boat in the past couple of years, many remember its heyday, and say it'll be tough to see her go.
"I think bittersweet is the proper term. It's been an eyesore for a while, so it's time to move on. But it had a day, and I wish they had found a way to make it a good one again," Mike Pingry, a Marietta resident, said.
Crews are expected to begin moving the Becky Thatcher Wednesday around 8 a.m.
