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.

A must see

You can drive by to see this old house or see it on the museum's historical bus tour. One unique feature about this house is that it has a wooden chimney!

A tiny treasure
Jul 2021
We drove past this small cabin and found out they were open on Friday afternoons. We made an effort to visit and really enjoyed the tour and learning about this 200 year old cabin. It is worth a visit if you happen to be there on a Friday afternoon. Note: It is a historically significant building.

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.
