Ferries on the Duck River started operation in this area as early as 1807, and Williamsport became a thriving trading center. Flatboating was a lucrative business, moving goods down the Duck River, into the Tennessee and Mississippi Rivers and down to New Orleans. Some of the flatboat operators, called Kaintucks, would then walk all the way home on the Natchez Trace. Today, Williamsport offers 1,850 acres for hunting and four lakes for fishing. Notice the quaint, historic homes and churches as you pass through.
