We were able to catch just a little the 2014 Court End Christmas. We stopped at St Paul’s Episcopal Church and Virginia’s Governor’s Executive Mansion. Janet was demonstrating her art of Scherenschnitte all day at the Valentine.
We always kick off our Christmas Season with a visit to Maymont’s Old Fashioned Victorian Christmas celebration. Carriage rides , Carolers, Bell Choirs and Brass Bands mingle with Victorian dressed ladies and gentlemen. Stand by the roaring bonfire or tour the Dooley Mansion decorated for Christmas each year on the first weekend of December.

According to a combination of old records and legend, the name derived from an incident when the Jamestown settlers first arrived. Captain Christopher Newport’s flagship, Susan Constant, anchored nearby on 28 April 1607. Members of the crew “rowed to a point where they found a channel which put them in good comfort. They named the adjacent land Cape Comfort, now known as Old Point Comfort to differentiate it from New Point Comfort 21 miles (34 km) up the Chesapeake Bay.
For most of the 19th and 20th centuries, Old Point Comfort was a summer and winter resort in the town of Phoebus in Elizabeth City County; in 1952 the residents of both the town and county voted to be consolidated with the independent city of Hampton. Old Point Comfort is the location of historic Fort Monroe, The Chamberlin Hotel, and the Old Point Comfort Light.
