Originally named for its proximity to the easternshore of the Lynnhaven River, the first Eastern Shore Chapel was built elsewhere by 1689. Thevestry of Lynnhaven Prish commissioned thebuilding of the third Eastern Shore Chapel in 1754. This brick structure located north of here on the site of the second chapel (circa 1730),had a gable roof skirted by modillion cornices,typical of Virginia's simpler colonial churches.Because of the expansion of the Naval Air StationOceana, this chapel was dismantled in 1952. Builtto the northwest of here, the current church was completed in 1954 and took selected remnantsof the interior fabric, including the gallery stepsand pews from the 1754 building.
