Wiggins Ferry Company

Description

The Wiggins Ferry Company operated a steam-powered ferry transporting individuals across the Mississippi River to and from Missouri and Illinois. In addition to the ferry, the Wiggins Ferry Company also developed depots, warehouses, and railroad tracks on both sides of the river. Because the first bridge spanning the Mississippi River was not built until 1874, the Wiggins Ferry Company was essential for individual transportation and transporting rail-car traffic over the Mississippi River. This collection consists of the Wiggins Ferry Company Ledger Book covering 1864-1870.
