The Grafton Ferry will be making the trips between Grafton and St. Charles County, Missouri beginning Friday, according to Grafton Mayor Tom Thompson.  The ferry's operation during the spring and summer is welcome news to those who travel back and forth to Missouri, and Thompson says the local merchants are especially glad to see it's return.

He tells The Big Z the ferry gives a big boost to the tourism industry.
