Brown's Ferry story and links provided by FG user # 47726687.
Brown's ferry, originally built by Baxter Brown to reach his land on the opposite shore, as mentioned earlier, was another busy one because of its location on Yellville Road, which ran from Arkansas to Protem, Missouri, In the late 1800s, Brown's ferriage free was fifty cents per wagon. The wear and tear of the crossings and the elements took its toll on the ferryboats, and Brown had to build several replacements crafts during the years he ran the ferry. Usually Bron's vessels were built of pine shipped in from southen Arkansas. In 1923, Baxter Brown's son, Joe, who was married to Willa Nave, bought the ferry. During their tenure as owners, Joe and Willa Brown built two replacement ferryboats. The last one constructed by Joe Brown was made from lumber cut in a mill owned by Joe Burleson at Pyatt, Arkansas. Two wagons or two cars could be ferried per trip on the ferry. Under the management of both Baxter and Joe Brown, Brown's Ferry ran from the late 1800's until 1945 when Bull Shoals Dam was built. The resultant Bull Shoals Lake covered some of the Brown's land, and the ferry ceased operation due to the lake waters. After selling seven acres of their land to the goverment for the Highway 125 boat dock on the south side of the lake, Joe and Willa Brown moved to Protem, where they also moved their general store.
