I spent many happy days as a teen-age boy at the Houchin Ferry on pool 6. Three park employees, Noel Skaggs, Vertice Dossy and Hugh Smith, were the ferry operators. The ferry was open from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Any one wishing to cross the river outside the hours of operation, either had to ferry their selves across, by hand, using the stabilizing cable of the boat, or take the backloads to the Munfordville Bridge. The Munfordville option made the short trip from the "Forks of the River" to Brownsville almost a 50-mile drive. After the building of Nolin Dam, access to and exit from the "Forks” was much easier than it was in the late 1950’s.
