About
The Captain Timothy Hill House was built circa 1800 and is the oldest known house on Chincoteague Island. Originally built to have a wooden chimney...the replica of that chimney is now in place. Listed on The National Register of Historic Places and The Virginia Landmarks Register in 2011...a visit to this house is a step back in time to the early life on the island. Open to the public during the summer season with tours on Fridays 1-3 PM. Other times by appointment. Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated.

Very Interesting

We visited during COVID so we were not allowed to go in the house but they welcomed you to walk around and look at the grounds. The newly constructed chimney was interesting.

Small but interesting for history buffs. Closed due to COVID but signs encouraged us to look around, peek in windows. Had literature available to guide your visit.

From what we could see, the building is well kept and authentic. Very limited viewing hours off season.

Very neat little site, very informative volunteer speaker. The picture boards were neat to view, along with the home site itself.

Not much

Suggest you not waste the time. Not very historical just an old wooden shack and not much else. Being the oldest house on the island is the claim to fame

Quite a Surprise!

We were just out driving around exploring the island when we saw the Captain Timothy Hill House. Being a history buff, I really enjoyed looking around this old, well preserved homestead. My wife also really enjoyed. Well worth taking the time to visit!

Worth a Visit
Jun 2019
If you are in Chincoteague, I recommend you go see this place. It is only open on Fridays 1-3 pm, but is a very interesting piece of history. They have done a fantastic job of restoring the home and the docent is very knowledgeable. See if you can find all the ship carvings around the outside of the house! Captain Hill is buried nearby in the family cemetery which you can visit as it is right by the road.
