Sans Souci Ferry
Windsor / Bertie County
Sans Souci Ferry Where NC Secondary Road 1500 meets the Cashie River, there is a sign that says “Blow Horn for Ferry.” Such is life off mainstream America! The Sans Souci Ferry is one of the last surviving three two-car inland ferries operated by the North Carolina Department of Transportation. The ferry site is not on any map. The free four-minute trip on the flat slab of floating metal is routine for farmers and others who live along the river. But you can find it if you try. Ask around. You won’t see many like it in North Carolina or, for that matter, in the nation.
