Town historian and NHPS board member David Scott will lead Northampton Historic Preservation Society’s Guided Walking Tour of Historic Eastville this year on Sunday, June 23rd at 4:00 pm (rain or shine). In addition to a general informative overview of Eastville, he will offer a new segment covering more houses on Willow Oak Road this year. The walking tour will start at the Court Green, one of the oldest in Virginia, where you can imagine how it looked at various times during its 300+ year history. You will learn about the historic district, which showcases a significant collection of high-style and vernacular buildings.

Picture Eastville in the early 1900’s when it was a bustling town in the midst of an economic, agricultural, and transportation boom, and Courthouse Road was a major thorough-fare in the county. The walk will be approximately one mile in length so be sure to dress comfortably. Register now to hold your spot! Space is limited and preregistration will help the program start on time. Attendees are asked to register early using any credit card at the NHPS website. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Tour will begin at the Court Green at 4:00, so be sure to be there early!
