Historical Information
A. J. Knott owned land in the area of the street and park that now bear his name. In the 1880s and 1890s, Knott operated the Stark St. Ferry, which connected Portland and East Portland for many years. The ferry was originally fueled by "mule-power," with mules pulling the ferry from each shore. Business dwindled when the Morrison Bridge was made free to all, since the Stark Street Ferry was only free to small children and funeral parties.
