Elkin's Ferry Battlefield

The Elkin's Ferry Battlefield is a wooded area, crossed by the Little Missouri River, and Middle and Howard Creeks. Nevada County Route 37 and Clark County Route 14 roughly follow the route the Union forces. The presumed ferry site, on Nevada County Route 37 ten miles north of Prescott, is still visible as a deep cut in the river bank near the road. The ferry was replaced by a wooden bridge in the 1920s, which was washed out sometime in the 1950s or 1960s. The area is also flood-prone and is not suitable for development.
