Mathews County, Va. (factoids):

GRID: FM17ul

population: 8,900 people live in Mathews County

Located on the eastern tip of what is called the Middle Peninsula and on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Mathews was first sighted in 1608 by Captain John Smith during his exploration of the Bay. During the late 1700's and 1800's, Mathews county supported a major ship building industry that was known throughout the Chesapeake Bay. Since early settlement, Mathews' residents have remained tied to the sea, serving in the merchant marine, and harvesting a living from the bounty of the Bay.

Today, there are no traffic signals in the entire county; all major roads pass us by; 84 square miles/140 square km makes Mathews the 2nd smallest county in the state of Virginia; however, with 214 miles/356.6 km of shoreline, its more than any other county on the Bay; Mathews County boasts having 2 old lighthouses that can be seen via boat.
