The Ware Neck Store & Post Office


Friends of the Ware Neck Store (FOWNS) owns the Ware Neck Store and Post Office and is committed to maintaining, preserving, and improving this building.

IMG_0363_facadeBuilt in 1877, the building is a significant historical resource of Gloucester County, Virginia and was placed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.  Its location at a key intersection of roads in Ware Neck and its close proximity to the old public Hockley Wharf on the Ware River has enabled the Ware Neck Store and Post Office to survive for the last 140 years even as the community and commerce transitioned from the waterways to the highways.
