ROCKY HILL--It's the longest continuously running one of it's kind.

For 360 years now, the Rocky Hill Ferry has been making it's run from Rocky Hill to Glastonbury, and back. Though the vessels and passengers have changed over the years, the mission hasn't--crossing the Connecticut River.

As of April 1, the ferry retains its record, and on this week's Hidden History, photojournalist Mike Townsend took us sailing for the most historic four minutes our state has to offer.

The service runs seven days a week April 1 through November 30. For more information on the ferry schedule and ticket prices, click here.
