Founded in the 17th century, Norfolk started as a small village near the Elizabeth River and eventually flourished into a bustling port city by the time of the Revolutionary War. Over the centuries, the city expanded from its original neighborhoods, such as the Freemason District, to newer areas like Ghent on the Hague. With its rich history as a major naval hub, 20th century Norfolk has much to offer to visitors. Join us on a journey through the diverse and dynamic past of this multifaceted city, led by knowledgeable authors from local museums, historical organizations, and city institutions. Experience the historic charm of Norfolk's oldest neighborhoods and discover the fascinating stories of its beachside communities. Our tour concludes with recommendations for dining and entertainment options that still echo the city's vibrant history.
