As part of its mission, the Society collects and records memories of older residents and notable events, which can be listened to at the Museum. We welcome donations of documents, artifacts, postcards, etc related to the history of the area.

Twice each year the Historical Society holds fundraising events: a Low Country Shrimp Boil on the Saturday of Garden Week, the last weekend in April, and an Oyster Roast on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Tickets $30 for adults are available over the Internet by sending an email to ccmuseum@hughes.net. Call the Museum for current information at 757-331-1008.

Cape Charles is readily accessible from the Norfolk - Virginia Beach area and from Delaware and Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Take U.S. 13 and follow signs to Cape Charles, about 10 miles north of the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Go west on State Route 184. The Museum is 1.8 miles from the intersection of Rt. 13 and Rt. 184, a tall brick building on the south (left) side of the road as you enter the town, just past the water tower.

  • Great little place. Love that they take time to show the kids how things work.
  • A small museum. There was an elderly gentleman there as the guide. He was very informed and had alot of interesting facts to share
