The History of the Virginia Ferry Corporation
My Father, William (Butch) Baxter, has had an interest in the Chesapeake Bay Ferries since he was a kid. In recent years he has been able to research and learn a great deal about the ferries of the Virginia Ferry Corporation. He loves to tell people about the ferries that crossed the Chesapeake Bay between the Norfolk/Hampton region of south east Virginia and the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Over the past few years he has written articles about the Chesapeake Bay Ferries for PowerShips Magazine (The Journal for the Steamship Historical Society of America) as well as appearing as a featured speaker about the subject at the Cape Charles, VA history museum. The video featured below was produced by Jim Garrison, the grandson of VFC CEO Leland Garrison, and features my Dad talking about the history of the Virginia Ferry Corporation.
