History on Chincoteague

A must see while on the island. It's only open 1 day a week for 2 hours. It was closed each time we remembered to cruise by, but if nothing else take some cool pics for memories!

Although only open for a few hours during the day (1:00-3:00 PM), this little piece of history is a "must see". The guide was extremely knowledgable and explained the history in great detail. Worth the few minutes that it takes to visit.

This a a must do with the kids while on Chincoteague. Take the phones and electronics away from your kids for a little while, and let them see history. It's a good reminder of our roots during America's simpler time. One of the two oldest homes in Virginia. Cheers! ----- Ken

So glad they were able to save and restore this bit of Chincoteague history. It was so interesting to see the different layers of the walls of this little house, and hear it's history from a knowledgable docent. Don't miss visiting on Friday afternoons in season.

We had a group of 9 to celebrate birthdays and stopped to visit the house. To our dismay, the house was not open. So we got out of the cars to look in the windows. To our wonderful surprise, Louisa came down to the house and gave us an enthusiastic tour of the house! We REALLY enjoyed hearing all of... More

The house has been renovated well keeping authenticity in mind. A tour in this small house is a step back in time.

We were lucky to stumble upon this while exploring the island and were able to meet the owners and learn the special story of this house. It is a true treasure and we are very fortunate that the private owners are so committed to historic preservation. This is a must-stop on Chincoteague.

This is a tiny house on Main Street. It is basically a pull over, read the sign and take a photo stop. Not much else to do here.

The place has very limited hours (Friday 1 to 3 pm I think). The rather small house stands by the main street and has a small parking/pullover area.

Captain Timothy Hill House, Built Circa 1800. , Very informative history lesson not only on the oldest home built on Chincoteague Island, but also, a very informative ancestry lesson on the family that once lived in this home. The connected family that still to this day live on the Island. Love the tour and the lesson!!! Thanks to all that... More
