The first ferry across the Kalamazoo River, which is in Comstock, by the bridge where King Highway meets Michigan Avenue. The toll charges were:
25 cents for two horses and a wagon
6.5 cents (yes-really) for each additional horse
25 cents for one yoke of oxen
12.5 cents for one person and a horse
4.25 cents for each foot passenger
If you know how to give change for either a half or a quarter of a cent, Township Superintendent Scott Hess is very curious.
