    FORDS & FERRIES of Missouri


    Many of the streams and rivers in Missouri had fords (narrow-shallow places to cross) or ferries to take aid in crossing the water. They were usually established along travel routes, and many times had a toll keeper’s house or other buildings. Like other types of businesses in the outlying areas, these locations often acted as a community center or gathering place where the locals could catch up on the latest gossip or commodity prices. Many times fords and ferries also acted as a magnet for a small community that later faded away, or grew into busy little towns. SOME of the fords and ferries that once dotted the landscape of Missouri included:
