Welcome Aboard!


Gees Bend is full of history. From its wonderful quilts to the re-development of the Gees Bend Ferry, fighting a Civil Rights cause forty years after its closing, Gees Bend continues to be a place that fascinates outsiders.


The Gees Bend Ferry makes daily runs between Camden and Gees Bend, home of the famous Quilters of Gees Bend. The quilters usually gather at the Boykin Nutrition Center by 8:30 a.m. and quilt until 1:30 in the afternoon Monday through Thursday (times may vary).
