Keep Hatton Ferry Afloat!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society

  • 1 person is interested

The Hatton Ferry is running again!! The ferry runs every week April - October on Saturdays and Sundays, and holidays, from 10am to 2pm. The ferry will run if the river levels allow. We need help both piloting and telling the story of the last poled ferry in the United States. The ferry is dependent upon the level of the river, so it does not run every weekend. BUT! We still welcome people to come to the ferry, learn about its history and importance to the community, enjoy a picnic and explore nearby Scottsville, the first seat of Albemarle County.

Mission Statement

The Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society nurtures and promotes awareness and appreciation of local history by encouraging the identification, collection, study, and preservation of the materials of history; by striving for excellence and quality in research and interpretation of collections and local history; and by disseminating knowledge through educational activities, so that the past may shed light on the present and the future.

Description

Founded in 1940, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society (Society) is a private, non-profit educational organization (IRS 501 (c) 3) that seeks to study, preserve, and promote the history of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia. The Society is a membership organization, open to all, and receives no continuing operating support from federal, state or local governments but rather relies on membership fees, gifts and donations, and grants from private foundations.

The Society's research library, administered by a librarian on the staff of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library, contains over 2,000 books and bound periodicals, as well as manuscripts, maps, pamphlets, newspapers, and vertical files relating to the history of our community. Additionally, the archival collection contains over 1,500 artifacts of historical significance to Charlottesville and Albemarle County in addition to over 60,000 photographic images.

The Society is located in downtown Charlottesville in the historic McIntire Building. Designed in the Beaux Arts style by architect Walter Dabney Blair, the McIntire Buidling was completed in 1921 and donated by local civic benefactor Paul Goodloe McIntire to the City of Charlottesville as the city's first municipal library. Following an extensive renovation by the Society of this city-owned building in 1993 and the Society moved into it in January 1994.
