The Eastern Shore of Virginia
Settled just a few years after Capt. John Smith landed at Jamestown in 1607, the Eastern Shore of Virginia is a narrow peninsula situated between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. This year’s tour features 6 properties within close proximity to each other, including Eyre Hall, and is focused on the community of Cape Charles. The Eastern Shore lies between two marvels: a link to the mainland by one of the longest bridge-tunnels in the world to the south, and a link to outer space via a NASA rocket pad to the north. In between is a land known for the warmth of its residents, the serenity of its waterfronts, the richness of its land and, most especially, the charm of its homes – exemplifying the fine maritime, railway and agricultural heritage of the Eastern Shore.
