Captain Bennett Landing

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.
