Chincoteague Bed and Breakfast History | Island Manor House
The Story of our Chincoteague Inn
In our Chincoteague inn, there lies a story of a more distant time when two young gentlemen, a doctor and a postmaster, pooled their resources to build a grand manor house on a beautiful barrier island along Virginia’s Eastern Shore. It was from this residence that Mr. Joseph Kenny walked to the island’s only post office, where he served as the Postmaster, and Dr. Nathaniel Smith treated Union soldiers during the Civil War.

Some time later Sarah, a young lady from Baltimore, Maryland, came to visit the island. Joseph fell in love, and they were soon married. Would you believe that the young lady had a sister, Juliet, who came to visit and won the heart of the doctor? Dr. Nathaniel Smith and Juliet also married in due course, and the two couples soon lived together in this grand manor. However, Sarah and Juliet did not like living under the same roof, and as you might imagine, life became tough for the Postmaster and Doctor. So an agreement was made that would split the grand Maryland “T” house into two equal parts. Nathaniel agreed to make his home in the front portion, and Joseph remained in the back portion.
