The new Lawn School Exhibit is all about transportation in Jamestown starting with the Sail Ferries that plied the waters from 1675 to 1969. They were supplemented by the first steam ferries in 1873 on the East Passage and 1888 on the West Passage. There is a complete list of the 15 ferries that includes the year they were built, when they were in service and what happened to them. The next topic is Transportation and Population 1770 to 2010. From 375 people during the sail only era to 5,403 in 2010.
