And so this was Direct to your door delivery type of, you know, agriculture back in the early 19 hundreds, so in order to deliver to the customers in the East Valley, they'd cross the Salt River using Hayden's ferry. Now That is a bit of trivia that most of us don't realize when they were done with a day's worth of home to home selling. Think of that back in the day of the buggy, the wagon and the buggy. Or the wagon in the horse. Rather, they'd return empty with a successful day of selling their product and back at the riverbank. William again he was the founder. It was William Betsy Arnold would put rocks and empty containers so they wouldn't float away. Then he'd swim the team. And float the wagon and this would save another 50 cents because he already had spent 50 cents crossing over. He wanted to save a little bit of money coming back and the Hayden fairy. I mean, this was because the river was still running before we had it dammed up. So you drive across it on the Mill Avenue Bridge or Haydon Rule Bridge, but that there used to be a ferry across that river.
