Most folks know about Misty of Chincoteague but that’s not all there is to know about Chincoteague Island. Come dig into our rich and often surprising past at the Museum of Chincoteague.

Marguerite Henry really put Chincoteague Island on the map when “Misty of Chincoteague” was published in 1947.

Her children’s story about the very real herds of wild ponies that still live on Assateague Island spawned sequels, a movie, and legions of fans. People still come to Chincoteague because of Misty and, of course, the wild ponies of Assateague.

Quite a few are excited to learn they can see the actual Misty – and her foal, Stormy – during their visit. Both are on display at the Museum of Chincoteague!

Fishing, Clamming, and Crabbing Chincoteague Island

July 22, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

Fishing, Clamming, and Crabbing Chincoteague IslandChincoteague Island is surrounded by some of the best fishing grounds on the Mid-Atlantic Coast. In fact, fishing, clamming, and crabbing Chincoteague are some of our island’s popular activities!

When most people think of Chincoteague Island, visions of wild ponies tend to fill their heads – and why not? The annual Chincoteague Island pony swim is a very unique and special thing – but it’s hardly the only reason to visit Chincoteague Island!

Chincoteague was once known for its unique, salty oysters. While “Chincoteague Salts,” as they’re known, are still sought after, most of the currently rebounding local oyster beds were over-fished during the 19th century. Today we’re more known for our fishing, clamming, and crabbing.
