Nassawadox

Nassawadox, Virginia Real Estate

The translation of its Indian name is “beautiful place between the waters”. Founded in 1884, the little town of Nassawadox may be best known as the location of Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, a 160 bed facility which serves the entire Eastern Shore of Virginia. Shore Memorial is part of our local healthcare network with 12 office locations and over 100 physicians covering 24 specialties. What locals jokingly refer to as “greater downtown Nassawadox’ includes a bank, some little shops and an art gallery, plus the colorful “Little Italy” restaurant, home of pizza king and local radio DJ, talk show host and all-around good guy, known by all just as “Franco”. The new library is also located in Nassawadox and membership there opens access to the many public libraries throughout Virginia. Just down from the library is Brownsville, the home of the Eastern Shore chapter of The Nature Conservancy which oversees management of The Virginia Coast Reserve, our pristine chain of 18 off-shore barrier islands, now declared a “United Nations BioSphere.” The Northampton County Little League field is located there and a number of community events are held here including the annual horse show and the Brownsville Marathon Run. Residents of Nassawadox enjoy a quiet lifestyle with easy access to public boat ramps nearby and golf and beaches only 15 minutes away. And just outside town several beautiful little waterfront neighborhoods offering existing homes or lots on which to build your dream home.
