Nestled in the mountains of central Pennsylvania, just along the Susquehanna River, lies the last known wooden double stern-wheel paddle boats still in operation in the United States: the Millersburg Ferry Boats. With a fleet of two boats, The Roaring Bull V and The Falcon III, the Millersburg Ferry Boats are the only ferries still in service along the whole 464-mile-long Susquehanna River.

Suspected to have started in the 1750’s, the ferry has been in continuous service since 1817 and connects Millersburg in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, with an adjacent landing in Perry County along Routes 11&15, approximately 2 miles south of Liverpool. The landing sites are included in the PA State Historic Marker Program (indicated by the familiar blue and gold signs) and the ferry wall is listed in the National Registry of Historic Sites.
