Passion on the Plantation at Shirley Plantation in Charles City explores “the 18th century art of courting which depended on tender prose to woo that special someone.” Anxious to learn how? Stop by any day through February 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to take up a quill and craft your own love letter.
