Five miles southwest of here is the Hatton Ferry on the James River which began operating in the 1870s. James A. Brown established the ferry and a store on land first rented and then purchased from S.P. Gantt in 1881. In 1883 when a post office was approved for the store, it was named Hatton for the young federal postal official who signed the authorizing documents. The ferry is one of the only two poled ferries still functioning in the continental United States.
