Painted from an old black and white postcard, the steamer, actually a sternwheel packet was built at Parkersburg, West Virginia in 1898. Originally owned by Captain Gordon C. Greene and Carrie Greenwood. It ran between Pittsburgh and Parkersburg, then Pittsburgh to Charleston. After the Greene Line became based at Cincinnati she ran between Cincinnati, Pomeroy, and Charleston. On November 17, 1925 she was backed into by the steamer Chris Greene and had her hull ripped open. She turned turtle and landed just below the Cincinnati suspension bridge ... a total loss. Her boilers were salvaged and went into the towboat John F. Klein. Captain Greene referred to the Greenwood as the goose that laid the golden egg for the Greene Line.
