Welcome Aboard!

 

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

 

The Gee’s Bend Ferry makes daily runs between Camden and Gee’s Bend, home of the famous Quilters of Gee’s 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).
