Welcome! to the official website of the
Allenport-Fayette City, Pa. Ferryboat Service
that ran on the mighty Monongahela River during the golden age of steel
and coal. The data has taken years to compile and will be updated often.
All sources are from the Jacobs family and their spouses who owned and
operated the service starting in the 1800's.
Visit often, and please send any comments or info you may have.
Let this site be a tribute to the operators, crews, support staff,
and passengers that made this service a
unique part of early Western Pennsylvania culture.
