Deep Creek Virginia Homes For Sale
Deep Creek, Virginia homes for sale are rooted in a stage coach history. Because the northern section of the Dismal Swamp Canal joins the southern section of the Elizabeth River at Deep Creek, the town was also the main shipping location for the many Dismal Swamp lumbering companies until the lumbering of the swamp was terminated. The Dismal Swamp Canal is recognized in the National Register of Historic Places and noted as a National Civil Engineering Landmark. It is also acknowledged as a component of the National Underground Railroad for slaves who were attempting to seek freedom. Since 1963, the town has been situated in the independent city of Chesapeake, Virginia.
Today, residents have access to over 70 public parks throughout the surrounding area, ranging from small neighborhood parks to district parks offering ball fields, dog parks and picnic shelters. Deep Creek Park contains a lighted multi-purpose field, four tournament quality baseball fields and a perimeter walking trail. Residents also have access to more than 26 miles of multi-use trails throughout the park system that are great for walking, running and cycling.
