BOWEN'S FERRY

Subject

Bowen's Ferry

Description

Located on the Chattahoochee River near the Handy Community, Bowen's Ferry was transportation across the flowing water in the old days. Because of a drought in the summer of 1898, the river was so low the ferry could not cross. Efforts were made to plow the river bottom in hopes it would wash out and become deeper. Left to right are O.M. Coggin, Perry Coggin and Georgia Coggin.
