Historic Berkeley, Shirley and Westover


Nestled along the James River, off scenic Route 5 in bucolic Charles City County, Berkeley, Shirley, and Westover were all settled in the early 1600s as tobacco plantations, with Westover Church serving as the local parish. Their recorded histories date back over 400 years and are interwoven with stories of the earliest indigenous people, European settlers and indentured servants, enslaved Africans and their descendants through the colonization, founding, fighting, and reformation of the United States of America. Each property, designated as a National Historic Landmark built in the early 1700s, is unique in its architectural design and craftsmanship and features walking grounds and gardens.
