Geocache Description:

Town of Eastville, Virginia. Flat terrain, 30' above sea level. Our Jamestown 2007 project!

WELCOME TO EASTVILLE!
We house the NATION'S OLDEST CONTINUOUS COURT RECORDS, dating from 1632. During the Civil War, Richmond wanted all court records for safe keeping. We refused. Richmond burned. We didn't! Our records are originals and if you come during business hours((M-F 9:00-5:00) you can see actual Indian signatures as well as Daniel Boone's and the buildings that have housed them for HUNDREDS of years. Always a very independent community, we held a public demonstration against taxation without representation OVER A CENTURY before the Boston Tea Party. Our shores were important to Jamestown, initially for salt, and then for food (corn) and money (wampum shells). The local Indian were friendly (the local chief being nicknamed THE LAUGHING KING) and warned us of planned massacres. The Old Court Green is one of the oldest, most complete in the nation. Our Geocache is available daily during daylight hours. We have placed 2 hitchhikers in our cache. Esmy Shichans, King of the "Easterne Shoare", would like to go to Gravesend, England to see Pocahontas' grave. Debedeavon, king of the Occohannocks, would like to go to the Pacific Ocean. We would like them to return home after many adventures.
