Onley is located 8 miles to the North of Painter and was established in 1884. Now home to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, this state of the art facility is located at 20480 Market Street Onancock, VA 23417 (borders in-between Onley & Onancock).
Onley is derived from “Only”, the nearby estate of former Virginia Governor Henry A. Wise.
Onley started to develop in the mid 1880’s along side the railroad that ran from New York to Philadelphia ending in Cape Charles.
