The Sistersville Ferry crosses the Ohio River between Sistersville, West Virginia and the unincorporated community of Fly, Ohio. Known as the oldest ferry in West Virginia, it has been in continuous operation since 1817.[1] It is one of four ferries left on the Ohio River, and the only one along the 277 mi (446 km) stretch of the river on the West Virginia border; the others, located at Augusta, Anderson, and Cave-in-Rock, are all downstream, on the Kentucky portion of the river.
