Please save the date for The Shepherd’s Center of Chesterfield’s exciting free luncheon on The Shirley Plantation’s history with Julian Charity
on Wednesday, April 30th at 12:30 pm.
Shirley Plantation is Virginia’s first plantation. Founded in 1613, only six years after the first permanent English settlement at Jamestown, the crown grant carved Shirley Plantation of the Virginia frontier.
The chronicle of Shirley Plantation best exemplifies the period in our nation’s history between the settlement at Jamestown in 1607 and the movement towards American independence from Great Britain in 1776. During its long history and under the leadership of one family, Shirley Plantation has survived Indian uprisings, Bacon’s Rebellion, the American Revolution, the American Civil War, and the Great Depression.
