Captain Timothy Hill House reviews
This place is teenie and looks closed most of the time.. but is a neat little piece of History, worth a drive by and worth the Photo Op if nearby. A 200 year old Cabin!! more »
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. more »
From what we could see, the building is well kept and authentic. Very limited viewing hours off season. more »
Great little piece of American history on Chincoteague. We were lucky to have been on the island on a day it was open. A great tour & a wonderful restoration & preservation of a historic home.
Such a fine restoration. Louisa and Paul have done such an amazing job of restoring the house to its former glory.
A quaint little home in sensational condition. It was not open, but you could get ample interior views from the windows. A real lesson for children of the way homes looked and were constructed in an earlier period of our history. A must see on the island.
So great that the owners undertook the time, and the expense, to salvage the structure and the stories. With checking out the site for a brief visit.
Unique small dwelling. Glad they decided to take the time to preserve it.
