Product Overview

Since its beginnings in the early seventeenth century, South Norfolk, Virginia, has been a community marked by change and peopled with extraordinary characters. Founded in 1661 when the Southern Branch Chapel of the Church of England was built, South Norfolk has grown from a rural village to a "city of the first-class." This updated two-volume edition chronicles the rise of South Norfolk in careful detail and invites the reader to "step back in time when life moved at a slower pace and the community blossomed with friendship, trust and goodwill." With extended material and numerous historical images, the work vividly captures the spirit of an evolving American city. In this first volume lifelong resident and local historian Raymond Harper honors the dynamic history of South Norfolk by focusing not only on the founding fathers and early industries that shaped the city, but upon the lives of everyday families and individuals that have made South Norfolk home.
