Between the 1840's and early 1920's ferries were used to transport people and vehicles across the Rondout Creek. The last was a chain ferry affectionately nicknamed the "Skillypot", Dutch for tortoise, apt for both its appearance and speed. This bridge replaced the ferry in 1921 and served as an important link in the New York . . . Albany truck route until the New York Thruway opened in 1954. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the elegant example of suspension bridge construction now serves mainly local traffic.
