Westover Plantation is just ONE of many plantations that line Route 5 between Williamsburg and Richmond, Virginia. Tour some and admire others from the road; the history of this stretch of road is like no other.
In March 1938, the Richmond-Ashland Electric Line ceased operating trolleys after 31 years. The route had its start in 1812 as a stagecoach toll road. Trolleys were seen as the way of the future in 1907, but because of financial difficulties, the route finally changed over to bus service.
