Halstead's Point was an unincorporated community in York County, Virginia. In 1918, during World War I, a large tract of land in the area including Halstead's Point was taken by the U.S. Navy to create a military base initially known as a mine depot, where ordnance for military shifts was handled. Today, the lost town of Halstead's Point is unrecognizable, but was located near the Gate 3 of the US Naval Weapons Station Yorktown just off State Route 143 and east of Interstate 64.
