Historic Homes for Sale on Virginia’s Eastern Shore

Lovingly Preserved – Historic Properties

The Eastern Shore of Virginia having been settled by English explorers in 1607 (one year after Jamestown) has hundreds of historic properties, some even dating back to the seventeenth century. The Northampton County seat of Eastville has the country’s oldest continuous court records, dating back to 1632. The quaint Bayfront town of Cape Charles was a railroad boom town with most of the actual homes in town having been built between 1890 and 1925. Beautiful Onancock was a bustling port town settled in the late 1600′s. Historic “Cherrytown”, now Cheriton was settled about 1890 and was named for nearby Cherrystone Creek, home of our famous salty cherrystone clams. The Eastern Shore of Virginia boasts more than 100 little towns, most settled between 1700 and 1800. Our historic properties include properties that once stood out on the Barrier Islands and were moved to the mainland, seventeenth and eighteenth century farmhouses, gorgeous waterfront estates as well as lovingly cared for in-town homes.
