Abandoned Eastern Virginia: Forsaken Fragments of the First Colony

Author(s): Linda G. Cassada
The Tidewater region of Virginia contains some of the oldest cities in the country. Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown, as well as many outlying communities, all inhabit this marshy coastal area. Like other regions that have survived the passage of time, these regions contain a treasure trove of forgotten curiosities.

In Abandoned Eastern Virginia, let author Linda Cassada guide you to the region’s most captivating of abandoned places. Journey down backcountry roads, across fields of waist-high grass, and through dense underbrush. Venture down dirt lanes to discover homes—once grand and full of life—that were mysteriously abandoned.

Prepare to stumble upon discarded machinery and objects and to catch a glimpse of places, covered with dust and infested by insects, which have been untouched by man for decades. In silence and desolation, these places sit. Only the buzzing of bees and the occasional chirp of a bird can be heard as these abandoned curiosities slowly return to the earth.

You will appreciate the beauty of nature’s silent and thorough destruction, feel the loneliness and sadness of these hidden wonders, and no doubt wonder how these once-cherished possessions and structures came to be so utterly forgotten.


Linda G. Cassada has been traversing the backcountry roads of Virginia in search of abandoned places since she was young. Now, armed with a BA in professional writing, artistic talent, and a passion for all things mysterious and paranormal, Linda searches for dilapidated structures and forgotten objects. Using words, sketches, and photography, she breathes life into these lost treasures once more, in the hope that they will live on in the memories of others as they live on in hers. Linda’s photography can be found on Facebook.com/BackroadRemnants, as well as on Instagram @BackroadRemnants.
