Similarly-named islands are more notable elsewhere. There's one at Niagara Falls. And a Goat Island is a popular attraction for visitors of the Marsh Walk in Murrell's Inlet, S.C.
The official name of the island for sale in the Chesapeake is "Bradshaw's First Purchase," according to The Daily Times. It's still owned by the Bradshaw Family, which has been close to selling it before.
Bob Bradshaw, a descendant of the initial owners, says he's never set foot on the island. But he thinks the uniqueness of the property ought to help their cause.
He told The Daily Times, "How many islands are for sale in Chesapeake Bay?"
