Jensen (Mau-Be) Ferry

The first boat (framed together with wooden pegs) used for passenger and baggage was built and operated by Lars Jensen 2 1/2 miles down stream from 1881 to 1909. It was replaced by a cable ferry for wagons in 1885 and a larger boat in 1894. This was used until carried away by ice in 1909. Its last service October 5, 1908 was 86 trips by his son Jens, crossing run-away Indians migrating from Uintah Reservation to the Dakotas. The town was named in honor of Lars Jensen. Replica, 1/8 Size of Last Boat. Made by Jens Jensen.
