Northampton County is the southern 35 miles of a 70 mile long stretch of the Delmarva Peninsula known as Virginia's Eastern Shore. "The Shore" as it is affectionately named, is cradled by the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay or what is known locally as Bayside and Seaside. The Seaside, in particular, contains the largest island wilderness chain on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.
The Shore is a place that has somehow managed to remain relatively unchanged through the times. Its pristine condition is mainly a result of the surrounding waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the County's isolation to large East Coast metropolises such as Virginia's Tidewater Area (Virginia Beach & Norfolk). Generations of families have been left to their own and have created a rich tradition of living off the land through farming and fishing. For centuries a unique harmony, between mankind and nature, has evolved from these circumstances.
Northampton County's central location on the Eastern Seaboard places it less than a 1 day drive from areas such as New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
Northampton County contains numerous natural and cultural sites, including two large public parks, Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge and Kiptopeke State Park, located at the southern end of the county. Historic townships, such as Eastville, Cheriton and Cape Charles contain buildings that speak to over 350 years of architectural design in the United States.

Administrative Building Roofing Project
Starting on Monday, May 9th, contractors will start work removing the existing slate roof over the Administrative/Finance offices. The work is scheduled to be completed in 28 calendar days. The contractors will assemble scaffolding on the west side of the building, outside the Commissioner of the Revenue’s offices, and also on the flat roof over the “covered porch” on the east side of the building. The old material will be removed at these two locations. During this process, the building entrance nearest the Voter Registration Office will be temporarily blocked off with a trailer that will be used to haul away the old roofing materials. The trailer will be removed at the end of each work day and the entrance will only be blocked off until all of the old material is removed. The two building entrances on the west side of the building should not be affected, but everyone should use caution when contractors are in the area.
The contractors will stage their equipment in the area west of the Administration building dumpster enclosure. The contractors will park their personal vehicles on the grass lot on the south side of the building.
For any problems contact Mike Thornes, Public Works Director at 757-678-0414 or by email at email@example.com.
Thank You for your cooperation and patience.
