Old Ferry on The White River

Independence Co - I found an old car ferry on the White River west of Bethesda, Arkansas where the river straddles the Independence, Stone County lines.

Growing up in Arkansas, I could spot the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department's shade of orange anywhere. By the look of it, the vessel has been there for a while. Looking at the Google Maps image below it was on the west bank of the river until the past year. I discovered it in May 2013 on the east bank.

It's located across from the Martin Access on the White River. (The picture opens a Google Maps link)

Here are a few more pictures of the ferry.

If you know where this ferry came from or who owns it, I'm curious! Please leave a comment below.
