A National Historic Landmark on the James River off scenic Route 5 between Richmond and Williamsburg, Shirley stands as a testament to Colonial life and early American history of the indigenous, settlers, indentured, and the enslaved. An active family farm, Shirley is currently home to the 11th and 12th generations of the Hill Carter family. The wooden pineapple crowning the manor house has been welcoming visitors for centuries.
