The town began as an agricultural hub in the 1820s. A ferry was built later. Later in the 1800s the development of larger farming communities caused all but a handful of residents to stay and soon the ferry closed. In the 1970s the town sprung to life again and the population is now about 20. The ferry was reopened and still runs when conditions are good. Submitted by: WJ McKelvey
