Heron Point is a large, two-story open plan house sited on a very private 2.5 acre point facing the Chesapeake Bay. The perfect location for a longer stay to experience life on the Northern Neck. At 10 years young the house offers all the modern conveniences with water views from every room.

History Close-by: The town of Reedville has a long history. Elijah W. Reed, a New England ship captain, established the town in 1874 after building a factory here to process menhaden, a small bony fish rich in oil. (These fish are still caught and processed for Omega Fish Oil at a modern plant). Reedville soon became the center of the industry and home port to the Atlantic menhaden fleet. By the early 20th century the town, which resembled a New England fishing village, reputedly had one of the highest per capita incomes in the country. Its historic district contains early fishermen’s houses and Victorian mansions. The oldest dwelling is the Walker House (1875).
At 504 Main Street, you will find the Reedville Fisherman’s Museum. Indoor displays and actual moored boats make up the experience. The website for the museum is http://rfmuseum.org/ Small admission fee.
The Northern Neck Farm Museum is located in Northumberland County at 12705 Northumberland Highway, Heathsville VA 22473. The museum shows visitors the story of the Northern Neck farmer and engages them in understanding the many contributions that the unique lifestyle of agriculture has contributed to the nation. Browse the website at: thefarmmuseum.org The museum is open on Saturdays from 10 to 2 and Sundays from 1 to 4, from April 30 through October. Small admission fee.
The Northumberland Heritage Trail is a scenic byway from the Reedville Historic District to the Heathsville Historic District. This follows back roads along the Potomac and its tributaries. It crosses the Little Wicomico River via the Sunnybank Ferry. For several decades, it carried workers to the Reedville menhaden industry. You can drive or bike these roads.
