The Falls City was built in New Albany, Indiana, in 1890.  She was owned by the Kentucky River and Packet Company, and spent her days in service between Frankfort and Louisville.  According to Way, “She actually wore out in the trade.” In the end, they took her to Augusta, where she was parted out, and used in the construction of the Charles B. Pearce.
