The Iowa side of the Mississippi River
NOTE: Updates on the ferry begin with photo #8, taken in June 2012. The tug has been replaced and the barge has been refreshed.

This ferry is unusual in that the barge and tug are separate. The barge remains in the same orientation at all times, featuring a Wisconsin flag on the end that docks at the Wisconsin shore, and an Iowa flag on the other end. The tug reverses direction by pivoting at the start of each crossing.
There is a new tug on the ferry, the barge has been repainted and refreshed, and the ferry now operates 7 days a week.
On June 19 got on the ferry at Millville and got off at Cassville a nice little run would of liked to go longer anyway the lady running the lines was very pleasant she made it fun please tell her my friend and I enjoyed her company thanks robert m. gomez
