In August 1989, it was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in Nez Perce County, Idaho. At that time, it was located in Lewiston, Idaho, having been there since 1976.

In July 2004, Jean was moved from Lewiston to Portland, Oregon. Subsequently, its twin paddle wheels have been removed.
