The Hatton Ferry is the last pole operated ferry in America and has been crossing the James River near Scottsville since 1870. Enjoy a scenic trip and learn about the history of the Hatton Ferry and the important purposes it served in its heyday.
The Hatton Ferry asks for donations of $5 per person and $10 per vehicle to ride the ferry. All donations go towards the upkeep, maintenance and continuation of running the ferry.
Please note the operation of the ferry is dependent on the water level of the James River. Please visit us on Facebook
to see if the ferry is running.
The Hatton Ferry is a non-profit organization that relies on donations to save this piece of American history and we urge you to help us with this worthy cause. Any assistance you can give us will be greatly appreciated.
