The Eastville Mercantile building is a traditional 19th century stone of the Chesapeake area, located in the heart of Eastville. Built circa 1850, the two-story frame building consists of a large rectangular sales room and heated rear counting room on the first floor, and a storage room and heated rear apartment on the second. Typical of this vernacular form, the building has evolved over time to adapt itself to the varying needs of the community but has retained its historic fabric and rich architectural details.
