Cincinnati is very rich in history and has many beautiful places to visit that contributed to history. One of these beautiful places is known as Anderson Ferry located just off US 50. The Anderson Ferry travels back and forth on the Ohio River between Cincinnati, Ohio and Constance, Kentucky. This ferry has been in operation since 1817 and was originally known as Kottmyer Ferry before it was later sold to the Anderson family. Many ferries served the Cincinnati area but Anderson Ferry is the only survivor from the dozens that were running during this time period. The ferry helps provide a shortcut for the west siders that are traveling to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport which is located in Boone County, Kentucky. The Anderson Ferry helps connect Anderson Ferry Road to Kentucky Route 8 which is just east of the Kentucky Route 20 junction.
There are a total of three ferries that are running known as Boone 7, Little Boone and Deborah A. Boone 7 was originally built in 1937 and is still often used. The road that leads down to the ferry has been used since the 1800's and has grown into a major west side road in the 1900's. Since the price of gas has slowly been going up, the ferry has become more popular with motorists while operating two boats at their peak hours.
