Isle of Wright County Museum

The Isle of Wright County Museum was founded in 1976 by volunteers seeking to preserve the county’s rich history. At the museum you’ll find prehistoric fossils, a turn-of-the century county store and also, the world’s oldest ham. This Smithfield cured ham dates back to 1902 and landed Isle of Wright on our ‘Weirdest Places’ list.

While a super old ham is weird, it’s also pretty cool, and the museum is a neat attraction for locals and visitors. Click on the website to watch the 24/7 ham cam!
