BREAKING: White’s Ferry Ceasing Operations Immediately
In a post on Historic White’s Ferry Facebook page, an announcement was made informing the public that White’s Ferry will be ceasing operations immediately after the Circuit Court of Loudon County ruled that no public landing exists on the Virginia Shoreline at White’s Ferry Road, prohibiting the ferry from landing at that location in Virginia.
White’s Ferry is the last remaining ferry in Montgomery County.
The full statement can be seen below:
