La pirogue monoxyle (creusée dans le tronc d'un seul arbre) de 11,80 m de long, sortie du fleuve par les Ingénieurs du Service de la navigation du Rhône en 1862, est enfin revenue sur la commune où elle fut découverte. Elle avait été transportée au musée des Beaux-arts de Lyon avant d'être installée sous un abri dans le Parc de la Tête-d-Or. Elle y fut exposée à tous vents pendant près de 50 ans, munie de la seule mention "Merci de ne pas toucher".
