Agawam Ferry Rides
September 26, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Go back in history and take a ride on the Agawam Ferry, named after Pyrrhus Concer (born in Southampton, NY in 1814), who was a freed slave who went on to become an important figure in US History, and left a memorable legacy in the community. It was he who first conceived of the Agawam Ferry, and operated a small sailing vessel transporting passengers from the village to the beach in the mid-1800’s. The Ferry runs again now in his honor and to commemorate his life, and to relive that aspect of our local maritime culture.
