KISSIMMEE TIDBITS

CAPTAIN CLAY JOHNSON
Captain Clay Johnson was a well-known and successful steamboat captain and businessman in the Kissimmee area. He was born in Illinois on the November 5, 1850 and spent most of his childhood and early adult years in New Orleans. In 1883, Johnson’s brother in law invited him to move to the river territory that would soon become Osceola County to assist with Hamilton Disston’s canal dredging operation in the Kissimmee River. Johnson had his own set of fleets from the 1880s to the 1920s. His first steamer was the Mamie Lown and some of his other boats were named after his wife and daughters. His fleet of steamboats would deliver supplies, trade goods, and move passengers around the Kissimmee River Valley. Captain Clay Johnson retired from the steamboat industry in 1926 and passed away five years later in 1931. For more information, please contact the Osceola County Historical Society.
