 A Coastal Christmas Celebration

Help us renovate Sibley's General Store the permanent home of the Mathews County Visitor & Information Center.

We have a wonderful selection of gifts, art and crafts. The revenue from what you can  purchase at MCVIC has helped us to install plumbing, water, and a handicap access to this old Mathews icon. We are now focusing on the creation of the Discover the Chesapeake Bay room and repairs that this gentle old building needs. You can help by shopping with us or leaving a donation.
