From its founding in 1661, South Norfolk, Virginia, has grown from a rural village to a city of the first-class. This quintessential American town has endured and prospered through generations and has been a community marked by change and peopled with extraordinary characters. In the second volume of this definitive history, lifelong resident and local historian Raymond Harper continues to chronicle the rise of South Norfolk in careful detail. With extended material and numerous historical images, Harper examines the influences of South Norfolk's founding fathers, sports in the community and development of the business district. The result is an accessible and entertaining narrative that not only recounts the community history, but also the topical histories of many civic organizations, the local government and leading businesses.
