The Pride of Cassville Car Ferry connects two National Scenic Byways; the Great River Road and the Iowa Great River Road. The ferry served the early settlement as far back as 1833 and it continues today, making the same trip back and forth across the mighty Mississippi. It is the oldest operating ferry service in the state of Wisconsin.

Take a ride on the Cassville Car Ferry and visualize a twenty-three year old Nelson Dewey, who was to become the first governor of Wisconsin, making his first trip across the Mississippi to reach the tiny village of Cassville. Today, it is still a fun way to cross.
