The History

of Miss Molly’s Inn

Miss Molly’s Inn was built in 1894 by Mr. J.T. Rowley, the “Clam King of the World” who was famous for his “Rowley Oysters”. Miss Molly was born in  1888. Her husband passed away in the early 1920’s, leaving her a young widow.  Molly had to find a means of support in this tiny secluded fishing community, at a time when single young ladies had few options.

Miss Molly decided to open her house to paying guests and recruited her uncle “Captain Jack” to help in her bold endeavor.  Captain Jack was an active coast guardsman who assisted in sea rescue, was keeper of the lighthouse and was part of the New Orleans flood relief team in 1927.  Visitors came to the island to hunt and fish and lodged at the Inn.  The income allowed Molly to keep her most precious possession, her home. Many new visitors arrived in 1936 when a new bridge was built replacing the ferry from the mainland to Chincoteague.

In 1946 Marguerite Henry arrived in the summer. She would sit with Miss Molly and Captain Jack rocking on the porch and discussing thoughts and ideas for her new book, Misty of Chincoteague. Learn more about Miss Molly’s and Misty of Chincoteague on our Misty and the Wild Ponies of Chincoteague page.

What our guests are saying…

Lovely Inn, wonderful hosts! The Inn is full of local history. We stayed in the Marguerite Henry room which was comfortable and had a great bed. There is an upper deck where you can relax and enjoy a partial view of the harbor. Also a lovely covered patio to have coffee in the morning and enjoy freshly baked snacks. Breakfast in the dining room was enjoyable as you could mix with the other guests.
