Bissell Ferry connected South Windsor (east of the Connecticut River) to Windsor on the western bank.

After English settlement, homesteaders west of the river relied on John Bissell’s ferry to reach pasturelands on the east side in South Windsor.

The Bissell ferry operated from about 1633 to 1925.
