The Anderson Ferry has been in continuous operation since 1817 has three Ferries, Boone 7, Little Boone and Deborah A. It is located about 10 miles west of downtown Cincinnati, providing the only automobile crossing between the I-71/75 Brent Spence Bridge and the I-275 West Bridge. The ferry has been in operation so long that a dirt road leading to it dating from the early 1800's grew into a major West Side road in the 1900's. Anderson Ferry Rd. makes the ferry easy to find. The ferry is popular in recent years do to higher gas prices and ease to the CVG airport and operates two boats during peak hours. Boone 7 built in 1937 is still often used. The airport is located about three miles south of the ferry in Kentucky, and has grown from a single runway in the 1940's to what once was one of the nation's largest International airports in the country. The ferry saves Cincinnati west side residents miles of driving, and is popular both with those catching flights and those who work at the airport. It is also a daily commute for some people who live and work near the ferry. I try to ride the Anderson Ferry a couple times a week. The Anderson Ferry Boat Company is a long standing tradition for travel between Cincinnati's Westside and Northern Kentucky, take a ride.
I started photographing the Anderson Ferry back in 1999 and shared them on some websites, then I set up this website back in 2005 to share and sell photographs of the Anderson Ferry Boats, and provide history and information about the ferry since there was no place to find times and other information about the Anderson Ferry prices and schedule. We increased Anderson Ferry's customer base with our photography and providing people information about a Cincinnati Icon when there was no online presents.
