Long Description:
According to the Captain, the current ferry has run since 1948 but he said that local historians have records of a ferry being at the site sine 1790.

The ferry will take you from Fredericktown in Washington County Pennsylvania to La Belle across the river or vise versa. It only runs at certain times of the day and week so see below.

This is the last cable ferry of it's kind on this part of the river. In order to log either take a photo of yourself at the terminal or on board. If that is not an option, please describe your trip in some detail.
