Federal House-Modest Town, Virginia

I do not have much information on this home except old real estate listings with the build date of 1780. Assuming this is true, this would include some modifications over the years. It has been restored in the last decade.

Clark Presbyterian Church-Daugherty, Virginia

The congregation for Clark (sometimes Clarke) Presbyterian Church formed in 1894 as one six Presbyterian churches on the Eastern shore of Virginia. The Gothic Revival church was built in 1922. It now sits abandoned with significant damage to the roof.

St. George’s Episcopal Church-Pungoteague, Virginia

Picture credit: Library of Congress. Taken in 1930.

Built in 1738, the St. George’s Church is the oldest extant church on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Federal Troops used it as a horse stable and caused great damage. It was rebuilt after the Civil War. Some of the original brickwork is still in place. The church is used sporadically, along with its cemetery.

Notice the checkered pattern. This is an early American example of the Flemish bond. You can read more about it and why the brick appears white in some photos on this website.

It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.
