The first boat (framed together with wooden pegs) used for passengers and baggage was built and operated by Lars Jensen 2 ½ miles downstream from 1881 to 1909.
It was replaced by a cable ferry for wagons in 1885, and a larger boat in 1894.
This was used until carried away by ice in 1909.
Its last service October 5, 1908 was 86 trips by his son Jens, crossing run-away Indians migrating from Uintah Reservation to the Dakotas.
The town was named in Honor of Lars Jensen.

Replica, 1/8 size of the last boat, made by Jens Jensen.
