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.

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

We came across this historic house while driving around on the island. We couldn't go inside, but we did peek in the windows. It's an amazing place, considering how old it is. Hope to be able to go inside on a return trip. Read about...More

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!

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

We didn't see the inside, but the chimney and the outside (along with the pretty day) was a must-see.

If living in a tiny house is your thing this would be the place. You can walk around and look through the windows everyday. But to go inside it's open only on Fridays at select times. Is not the original location but this spot makes...More
