of the James
from south of the
Surry County is located across the
James River from the historic sites of Jamestown, Williamsburg,
and Yorktown. It is centrally located between Richmond,
the tri-cities, and Hampton Roads.
A 15-minute free ferry ride across the James
provided by the Virginia Department of Transportation, provides
a unique view of the land. It's not hard to imagine what
the first colonists experienced as they traveled on the
same river 400 years ago.
