Gordon's Ferry on the Kern River
California State Historic Landmark 137

Gordons Ferry was an overhead cable type of ferry operated during the 1850's by
Major Gordon. An adobe station house was located on the south bank of Kern River, just a few yards
to the west of this marker. It was also a station on the Butterfield Overland Mail stage route
from 1858 to 1860.
