Port Norfolk is a turn-of-the-century neighborhood situated along the southern shore of the Elizabeth River. The majority of Port Norfolk's homes were constructed from the 1890s through the 1920s. The neighborhood boasts an eclectic mix of architectural styles from the period, including Victorian Vernacular, Queen Anne, American Foursquare, Arts and Crafts and Colonial Revival.

The neighborhood has retained much of its original charm and character, with shady tree-lined streets, a lovely waterfront, and a quaint business district. Port Norfolk takes on the character of a small town in the midst of a big city.

Many Port Norfolk residents are committed to restoring the priceless historic treasures the neighborhood has to offer. Additionally we are committed to creating a true community - one where friends and neighbors come together to make a difference. When you come to Port Norfolk, you'll not only enjoy architectural gems of the past, but a friendly community atmosphere of days gone by.
