Eastville's Commemoration Coin (2007)

Eastville's c. 1800 Clerk's Office, located on our Nationally Registered Courthouse Green, has housed the Nation's Oldest Continuous Court Records (from 1632).

Our greatest contribution to the mainland, and Jamestown, was always our supply of whelk and clam shells (wampum), and corn which grew well on the Eastern Shore countryside.
