Long Description:
Colorado River Ferries

Ferries of various size and design once provided transportation across the lower Colorado River linking Arizona with California, Nevada and Utah.

Ferrymen plied their trade from Yuma to Pearce Ferry. The first ferry on the river was started at Yuma Crossing in 1849. Ferries operated into the 1900's.

Ferries furnished a vital service until railroads and highways replaced them.
