Bill Harris – affectionately known as “Mississippi Bill” for his many long-distance river trips in his boat “Miss Guntersville Lake,” – was one of Guntersville’s most beloved ambassadors.

He traveled up and down the Tennessee River, the Tenn-Tom and the Mighty Mississippi, giving and receiving keys to various cities. His boat has been in the Guntersville Museum since his passing in 2004.
