Ferries in Minnesota



Minnesota ferries were mechanical marvels of their time, crossing rivers driven only by the current of the water and by using a system of ropes and pulleys. River towns often began as a ferry crossing, including St. Cloud, which began with three licensed ferries to cross the mighty Mississippi.
