One of the oldest ferries in continuous operation in the United States still hauls travelers across the Nanticoke River in western Sussex County. In early centuries, this form of transportation was important for crossing deeper rivers and villages often sprang up at the Landings as one did here. Woodlands, DE has a cluster of houses, the Methodist Church, an old burial ground and the Tina Fallon. The vessel is operated by the Delaware Dept. of Transportation year round, except for major holidays. She was put in service in 2008 and carries about 225 vehicles per day on a typical summer day.
