1. Rosevear's Ferry Marker
Inscription.  1890, Joseph Rosevear and Sam McAnulty pulled the waterlogged Glenn Ferry out of the Snake River, and some of its material was used to build the Rosevear Ferry, which operated until 1908, when a bridge was built. The Rosevear Ferry was owned and operated by Joseph Rosevear, and ran from Rosevear Ranch on the south side of the Snake River, to their property on the north side. It is now the Eddie Bostic Recreation Area, or Glenns Ferry Boat Docks.
 
Erected by City of Glenns Ferry.

Also see . . .  History of Glenns Ferry - City of Glenns Ferry. Gustavus P. Glenn knew an opportunity when he saw one. He was a freight hauler with teams of oxen and horses moving needed goods along the Kelton-to-Boise section of the Oregon Trail.... In 1869 Gustavus Glenn built a ferry boat so that his wagons and others could cross the Snake River without the danger of driving horse and oxen teams through the treacherous waters. By this time traffic on the Oregon trail was heavy in both directions. (Submitted on October 30, 2018, by Barry Swackhamer of Brentwood, California.)
