On the river bank, a short distance west
of this stone, was the landing place of
Harris' Ferry,
the most historic crossing place on the
Susquehanna. A great part of the early
migration into Western Pennsylvania and
the Ohio Valley passed this way.
The Ferry-right was first granted to
John Harris, father of the founder
of Harrisburg, in December, 1733. For
over half a century the site of
Harrisburg was known as
Harris' Ferry.
