James River Plantations – April 23

 

Open together, three historic properties and a church established in the early 1600s celebrate Historic Garden Week on three consecutive days. A special combo ticket allows access to the extensive grounds, gardens, numerous outbuildings, and first floor interiors of all sites. In addition to touring, Westover Episcopal Church is offering lunch. All are located between scenic Route 5 and the James River in Charles City, a county with an expansive history over its 400 years, including the indigenous, the indentured, the enslaved, early European settlers, and generations of their descendants. Built in the 1700s by a combination of indentured and enslaved labor, Berkeley, Shirley and Westover Plantations are Virginia and National Historic Landmarks, working farms, private homes and living links to our country’s past.
