Eastville Court Exhibit Example

When visiting the beautiful Virginia Eastern Shore, stop in Northampton County and view the Eastville Court Green Historic District. Look for an exhibit room located in the front left of the 1899 Courthouse building. In the exhibit, visitors are self-guided with photographs and descriptions, period pieces, and artifacts through the 300 years history of three Court Green buildings: the 1731 Courthouse, the Clerk’s Office which dates between 1750 -1800, and the ca. 1815 Debtors’ Prison. Every day from April to October, the three buildings are available for visitors to enter and view and during the rest of the year, they are open on weekdays. The newest Northampton County Courthouse, located behind the Historic Court Green, houses the modern County Clerk’s Office containing the oldest continuous county court records in America dating back to 1632. Visitors are also welcome to examine these documents during weekly 9-5 work hours.
