Virginia is covered on the Northeast States List
One of the original 8 shires created in 1634, it was named Warrosquyoake Shire.
In 1637, it was renamed Isle of Wight County, after the island off the south coast of England of the same name.
St. Luke's Church, built in 1632, is the nation's only original Gothic church and the oldest existing church of
English foundation. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in recognition of its significance.
In 1732 a considerable portion of the northwestern part of the original shire was added to Brunswick County; and
in 1748 the entire county of Southampton was carved out of it.
The county is bounded by the James River on the north and the Blackwater River
to the south. The land is generally low-lying, with many swamps and pocosins.
