Hatton Ferry 2014 Operating Season
4/2/2014

The Hatton Ferry will commence its 2014 operating season Saturday, April 19th. Come take a ride on the Hatton Ferry, a historic ferry across the James River and the only poled ferry still operating in the United States.  The Hatton Ferry operates from April 19th until late October and is free;  donations appreciated as the  operation of the ferry relies solely on donations given to ride the ferry and from the kind generosity of other supporters. 
 
Under ideal conditions, a round-trip crossing takes about 30-45 minutes.  No more than two cars and six people can be taken at one time.  The Hatton Ferry is located in southern Albemarle, a few miles outside of Scottsville.

*The ferry cannot operate when the water level in the James River is too high or too low.  For information about weather-related closings, call the Albemarle County Historical Society at (434) 296-1492, visit our website at thehattonferry.org, or friend us on Facebook for easy weekly updates.

Date/Time:
April 19th - October
Saturdays: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sunday: 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Cost:
Free; donation requested

Location:
10120 Hatton Ferry Road, Scottsville, VA
