Old Casino Queen riverboat auctioned off

WOOD RIVER, Ill. – A little piece of St. Louis history has been sold.

The old Casino Queen riverboat was auctioned off Friday at Mike's Inc. Shipyard in Wood River, Ill. for $600,000.

The boat was one of the area's first gaming facilities and replaced by the land-based casino and hotel that's currently in East St. Louis.

There's no word yet on what the new owner plans to do with the boat.
