Meeks Ferry (Belleview, Ky.)Although Edward Meeks owned the ferry in what is now Belleview for only a short time, the name has persisted for 200 years.
Anderson Ferry (Constance, Ky.)Located in Constance, the Anderson Ferry is named for George Anderson, who bought it in 1817 from Raleigh Colston. The Andersons built a large stone house overlooking the ferry where the family resided and operated a tavern. The Anderson family owned the ferry operation until 1841, when son Evan transferred the property to Montague McClure. According to legend, the transfer was the result of a lost poker game. However, there is evidence the Underground Railroad played a role in the property transfer.
