Welcome to Waterview... We are a quiet community of 80 homes and two businesses tucked away between the York River and Wormley Creek. Our residents vary widely in age and occupation, as do the ages and styles of the homes here. Our oldest residence is a civil war era home that was used as a hospital after being taken over by Union troops and our newest home was built in 2005.
It's free for all residents of Waterview. Just send us your announcement and any pictures you want to share with your news.
The York County Sheriff's Department sends out "Sheriff's Alerts" when a crime of interest to the community is committed in the county. Click the star on the left to view the current alerts.
Few people have lived in the Waterview area longer than Mr. Richard Wallace. In fact, he was born here! He has offered to share some of his childhood memories with us. We will post his recollections one at a time, so check back often to see what he has to say!
SINCE WE HAD NO ELECTRIC SERVICE I REMEMBER WE HAD AN ICE BOX TO KEEP OUR MILK AND MEATS COLD AND WE HAD ICE DELIVERY TWICE A WEEK FROM YORKTOWN ICE AND STORAGE. YOU WOULD LET THE DELIVERY PERSON KNOW HOW MANY POUNDS YOU WANTED WITH A CARD PLACED IN THE FRONT WINDOW. THE CARD HAD 25, 50, 75, AND 100 . WE NORMALLY GOT 75 LBS. SO THE 75 WOULD BE FACING UPRIGHT.
Waterview was represented at the York County Homeowner's Association meeting held Thursday, July 13, 2006. You can review the minutes of that meeting here>>>

Wormley Creek Marina is located in Waterview and is a certified Virginia Clean Marina. They offer full service repairs and also allow boat owners to make their own repairs. The boat ramp is available free of charge to Waterview residents but is not open to the general public due to lack of parking. Please call Wormley Creek Marina in advance to arrange for use of the ramp.
The marina also serves the general Yorktown community by providing a place for fire and rescue personnel to put in rescue boats in times of marine emergencies.
Originally built by Bill Reiser, Wormley Creek Marina is now owned and operated by Pam and Doug Truston.
Our closest neighbor is Dominion Virginia Power Station at Yorktown. Through open lines of communication and Dominion Virginia Power�s dedication to maintaining a positive relationship with our community, we have found it easy to co-exist with our industrial neighbor.

The York County Department of Fire and Life Safety has invited our neighborhood to join the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Neighborhood Recognition Program.
The CERT program is designed to encourage overall community preparedness in the event of a major emergency or natural disaster. In order to qualify, we must have ten (10) adults from Waterview complete CERT training.
