Overview

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 replication 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 and additionally Wednesdays in July 1-3 PM. Other times by appointment. Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated.

We were only able to see this from the outside as we were there at the end of the season. It is located in a very pretty area.

Adding this site to your island visit won't require much time, but it was an interesting bit of island history. From here, we continued our drive on the north side of the island. Free and on the main drag.

This was ok, but just ok. The house was closed, so the entire visit took about 5 minutes. Not really worth the drive over.

You won't believe how big it is inside!!!! Beautifully restored. An adventure for the whole family. Follow up with a respectful visit to the Hill Cemetery and learn a tragic tale of love gone wrong. If you're hooked, sign up for a Teaguer Tump Tour!

This carefully restored early 19th century Island house strives for complete historical accuracy and achieves it, it seems! The people who give the tour, are very knowledgable and make the experience fun. It's a labor of love, so it is only open limitedly from 1-3...More

We stopped by while out on a drive. Cute, little house that was closed at the time. However, some well placed cinder blocks allow you to peer in the windows and see pretty clearly most of what is there to see. A cool peek back...More
