James River Plantations
Historic Plantations from the 17th and 18th centuries are visible on the north side of the James River between HPW (Hopewell) VOR and the city of Richmond. Be sure to ask for Flight Following from Richmond (Potomoc) or at least stay under the 1400 ft shelf of the outer ring of the Class C airspace.

Shirley Plantation is especially visible where the James turns from flowing due south to east, but Westover Plantation is also lovely. Although Berkeley has the most impressive grounds, the trees obscure the buildings from the air.
