The Anderson Ferry
The Anderson Ferry is one of my favorite things about this area where I live. It crosses the Ohio River from Hebron, Kentucky to Cincinnati, Ohio. The ride takes only ten minutes. The ferry runs every day of the year except Christmas. It has been running continuously since 1817, and it is a national historic landmark.
The entrance to the ferry is along River Road, which is three miles south of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport in Hebron, Kentucky. Many people are surprised to find out that the Cincinnati Airport is in Kentucky.
The Anderson Ferry is privately owned and operated by the Anderson family. They have three ferries: Boone 7, Little Boone and Deborah A. (Hebron is located in Boone County, Kentucky.)
