The Sistersville Ferry which
crosses the Ohio River between Sistersville, West Virginia and Fly,
Ohio has been in operation since 1817. Established by the General
Assembly of Virginia on Jan. 28, 1818 as an act of granting ferry
franchise to John McCoy. 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.
