The third floor bedroom, also known as the birthing room, received its name because it is the highest room of the house and closer to God.

Steamboats, Show Boats, Tug boats for pulpwood, Commercial Fisherman, and vacationing fisherman have gone down and up the Pungoteague Creek using Mount Airy as a marker of what creek they were on.
Over the years improvements have been made without disgracing its' historical attributes. The asbestos siding that applied in the mid 50s was stripped off completely to expose the originals cedar siding.
Roof was replaced in the 90s. Electrical was updated 80s. Sheet rock was installed in dining & kitchen. The chimneys where lined with super flow, a method that originated in England, which was dried seals any cracks. There is still a need for restoration, yet the home is quite livable. Mount Airy present is filled with good karma.
She stands proud awaiting your appreciation and care.
Near the entrance of the road leading to Mt. Airy is this home build in the early 1900s. The home renovations began and still need completion, certainly worth all efforts.
