Description

Built in 1809, the ferry between Rumford Point and Rumford Corner was the last to operate on the Androscoggin River, ending service when a steel bridge was erected at that location in 1955. The ferry became known as "Kimball's Ferry" for early proprietors Moses F. Kimball and Porter Kimball. The last ferryman was Isaac "Ike" Easter. The ferry shut down when the Martin Bridge was completed in 1955.
