Mathews Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 18 photos

My father's family is originally from Mathews, VA but our ancestors can be traced back to Jamestown, Williamsburg and all the way to Guernsey - one of the Channel Islands between England and France.

Everyone on my father's side of the family, including my father, is buried in this church - Kingston Parish.

Escape to a simpler time

Escape to a place where time stands still. Where people still stop and say "hi" on each street corner. Where nature is in harmony with the people who live among her. Mathews County, Virginia is truly the Chesapeake Bay's Undiscovered Hideaway. Discover this special place for yourself. Visit our little corner of heaven this weekend. But let's just keep this secret between you and me, OK?
