DOWNTOWN TAMPA – AUG 2: This historic marker on Kennedy Blvd. at Rivergate Tower explains how the Hillsborough River Ferry (1846-1888) was the only way to cross the river at the time. The construction of the first bridge in 1888 forced the Tampa Ferry into retirement.

Erected by Hillsborough County Historical Commission 1977
