Inscription. Cedar Bluff Ferry was one of the ferries on the Red River between Bossier and Caddo Parishes in the 19th and early 20th century. It operated until the early 1950s when a bridge was built to the north for Highway 2. It ran from Cedar Bluff in Bossier Parish to Cedar Bluff Parish Road in Caddo Parish. Tolls were 10 cents for a horse a rider and 20 cents for a wagon. Through a system of cables, ropes, pulleys, trees and poles it was manually maneuvered across Red River.
