Summary
In 1925 the University of California Extension Division published its PICTORIAL HISTORY OF CALIFORNIA. This plate from that work perfectly illustrates and explains the role and importance of ferry systems on the Sacramento and American Rivers. Moon's Ferry was established around 1845 opposite Corning on the Sacramento River and served the first immigrants heading into that part of the country from Oregon. William Moon also owned and operated a store and hotel at the Moon House located on the Sacramento River across from Peter Lassen's Rancho Bosquejo.
