One of my tasks for the past few months has been to research the history of the Camden Ferry and write a site report on its history. In preliminary research, I gathered the snippets of information found scattered through our standard Camden history books and began to quickly realize that no one had done a comprehensive study of the ferry, or really on any of the other ferries located on the Wateree River adjacent to the Camden area. The ferries were important locales in South Carolina, as in the rest of the colonies.
