Tappahannock, Virginia

Our town, Tappahannock, Virginia, is ideal for our students as a safe and attractive setting. The 400-year-old community offers a depth of history that is remarkable. The town rests next to our riverfront campus, and visitors to our local businesses will often find photos of St. Margaret's historic buildings on their walls.

Tappahannock's grace is an extension of our motto. St. Margaret's partners with several community organizations, and our students are a fixture in town as volunteers and customers to an eclectic assortment of stores and restaurants.

Some of the Several

Tappahannock offers several culinary choices, and here are a few of our neighbors.

Acme Antiques & Ice Cream

A cool array of colorful and fanciful artifacts in antique store along with great ice cream, too.  It's about 440 steps from the St. Margaret's campus - we counted.

Java Jack's

A great selection of coffee along with delicious sandwiches.  Students tend to like the easy and laid-back atmosphere.

N&N Burger

Big burgers and crazy milkshakes are located only 700 steps from our campus. So much food!

Squirrel's Nest

Located just around the corner on Prince Street, this comfortable spot does not disappoint. Chicken wings are a favorite, but the menu includes other great options.


Arguably the best seafood plates are found in this quaint and easy going cafe. It's the perfect spot when oysters and crabs are in season.
