A scow powered by oarsmen let Oregon Trail wagons cross Snake River here from 1852 to 1870.

Then Overland Stage service from Boise to a rail terminal in Kelton, Utah was moved to this crossing, and M.E. Payne installed a large (14 by 60 foot) new cable ferry that used river current for power. After stage service was shifted to a more direct route at Glenn's Ferry in 1879, this boat handled mostly local traffic until 1910, when it broke away and sank 3 miles below here.
