Sistersville Ferry

The Sistersville Ferry ferries automobiles and pedestrians over the Ohio River between Sistersville, West Virginia and Fly, Ohio. It is the only ferry remaining along a 277-mile section of the Ohio River between Ohio and West Virginia and the oldest ferry in the state of Ohio. 1

A new $780,000 vessel was put into operation in 1999, nearly doubling the capacity that it could carry previously: one tractor-trailer or eight cars. 1
