Our Town
    As a rural waterfront village centrally located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, our history begins with the discovery by John Smith in 1608 of the site that is now Onancock, Virginia. We are proud of our history and the historic character of our town. Borne and sustained from the Chesapeake Bay for centuries, today, we treasure the quiet access to the water and the wildlife and marine life it contains. Our waterfront provides a pleasant place to launch your small boat, dock as you visit from the Chesapeake Bay and enjoy the amenities of our residential and business assets. It is easy to walk through our town, and there is much to do in and around Onancock.
