Ice before refrigeration. Now that’s something to ponder.Shirley Plantation

This month only, visit Shirley Plantation for an interpretive lesson on ice harvesting, packing and storing. See the Ice House, of course!

The last guided house tour begins at 4:30 p.m., but you can visit Lady Cessalye’s Gift Shop until 5:00. Give yourself about an hour to experience Shirley. Afterall, she’s Virginia’s first plantation!

Admission
Adults: $11
Children: $7.50

Hours
9:30 to 4:30 Daily

I need directions please. I couldn’t find a map on here. Either coming from Danville or Charlottesville. Thanks!
