Our History

Fishing Houses have lined the creek near Mackeys Landing since the 1700s, processing the local catch.

In 1899, Norfolk-Southern Railroad brought in the John W. Garrett train ferry. It was 41′ wide and 351′ long, by far the largest ferry to use Mackey’s Landing.

In 1910, construction was completed on the longest continuous railway bridge in the world – a trestle that took trains right through Mackey’s Landing.

Today, Mackeys continues the long tradition with its marina, ship’s store, and much more.
