From here, "The Chazy Landing Ferry," completed the major automobile route across northern Lake Champlain from Isle La Motte, VT, to Chazy Landing, NY, before the Rouses Point-Alburgh bridge was built. In 1905 Will Sweet designed, built, owned, and operated the first gasoline powered ferry on Lake Champlain named "The Twins" (for his sons Clinton and Gerald). In 1916 he constructed a larger ferry named "Twin Boys." The ferries operated from 1905-1937 and were prominent on early road maps.
