Near Cape Charles in Northampton County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Despite the Eastern Shore's high water table, Arlington enjoyed a proper English basement - two separate, inter connected cellars (one wet and one dry) with plastered walls, brick paved floors and a vaulted ceiling. Imprints of three chimneys occur on the South and North walls.
The extant foundation is marked with posts at each corner to indicate the size.

This and the other three markers are in obvious disrepair. I visited this site in 2013, but am only just now posting. I hope they are in better shape now.
