North Webster is home to THE DIXIE, Indiana ’s oldest sternwheel paddleboat. The Dixie has cruised Webster Lake since 1929, providing tours of the lake to generations of residents and visitors. A number of private owners cared for and operated the boat from 1929 until 2007 when title was transferred to a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation called Dixie Sternwheeler, Inc. (DSI). DSI continues to operate the boat for regular summer cruises from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day and to allow chartered events such as weddings, retirement home outings, and company and community gatherings. Regular cruises operate each evening and during the day on Sunday - each lasts about 75 minutes. Many of the regular cruises feature period music and a narration with some history of the area, the lake and the Dixie.
