Our centennial village lies in the heart of the land of pleasant living, where coastal tidal waters surround us. Irvington offers a variety of recreational, cultural and entertainment opportunities. The Town Commons, located at the intersection of King Carter Drive and Tavern Road, consists of a ball field, playground, tennis/pickle ball courts and a bandstand/gazebo. The Commons doubles as the location for the Town’s Farmer’s Market, summer concerts and other large-scale, outdoor town events.
For boating enthusiasts, Irvington has various public marinas and for a fee, guests can dock their boats at any of these marinas that are conveniently located near the town. Opened in June 2004, the Steamboat Era Museum is the Town’s primary cultural attraction. Adjacent to the Commons, the Steamboat Museum’s mission is to collect, preserve and act as a depository for artifacts and all types of information pertaining to the steamboats that served the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
Irvington has long been recognized as possessing the ambiance of a historic village. In 2000, it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the US Department of the Interior. Take a walking tour of the town and stroll past the many quaint homes and beautiful gardens. Irvington lives in the hearts of its residents and shines in the memory of its visitors. Far or near, Irvington brings you home!
