Kentucky River Ferry is Kentucky’s Oldest Business
Posted: 18-Mar-2004 8:43AM CST

The Valley View Ferry across the Kentucky River where Madison, Fayette, and Jessamine Counties meet is Kentucky’s oldest business. It has been in operation since 1785. The ferry is privately owned; however, payments from the Transportation Cabinet keep the service free.
