Captain Philip Morris Bennett, Sr.
(Ferry pilot from 1930-1965)
Ferries were a means of transporting
vehicles across the Mississippi River between
St. Francisville and New Roads from 1930
thru 2012. In the beginning it was the
privately owned tugs, "The MELVILLE"
and "The RED
CROSS." Later they were replaced
by state owned ferries, first "The FELICIANA,"
then "The ST. FRANCISVILLE", and
"The NEW ROADS" that operated until the
opening of the Audubon Bridge in 2012.
