Pennsylvania is rich in historical gems, and the Millersburg Ferry is one fine example. Ferryboats have crossed the Susquehanna for hundreds of years, but wooden paddle boats have departed from Millersburg every year since 1817, making it one of the oldest ferries in continuous operation in all of the United States.
Unfortunately, low water levels have kept the boats at bay (no pun intended) and in order to keep the historic operation running, the Millersburg Ferry Association is asking for donations.
Donations are being accepted via the crowdfunding site,YouCaring.com.
