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

Loved this little house. From the outside it doesnt look like much but once you see the inside and hear the docent telling the history of the house you realize it is so much more than it appears, Crazy to think people lived there let alone raising 11 kids there. Rumor has it there is a ghost of the little... More

We happened upon this little place as we were Geocaching on the island. It is a wonderful part of island history that needs to be shared. There is an old mouse trap in there that is quite interesting. The outside wood of the building has carved boats in it. There woman who gave the speech for us was quite knowledgeable... More

I love history and this place is a little piece that takes minutes to check out. Been coming for years and I love that this small home has been set up to see.

We really stumbled upon this house, but it happened to be open when we drove by. It was interesting to hear some Chincoteague history and to drive to it's original site. The carved boats on the outside were amazing to see. The lady who was there was very informative and was glad to share stories and answer questions.

This old house is only open on Fridays from 1pm until 3pm. Very worth checking out. The lady that was there, was very knowledgeable about the house and very happy to tell the story over and over when new people came in.

While exploring the island we ran across this little house and read the historic sign. It was closed, I believe had weekend hours. Oldest house on the island, if your into history, it doesn't cost anything to ride by and look at it.
