History & History Related Items

Norfolk is a 400-year-old seaport. Because of its water-oriented location with the bay, lakes and rivers, Norfolk life revolves around related to water. The popular logo is a young mermaid. It may be seen everywhere around the city. The mermaid was chosen to symbolize 300 years of maritime and naval heritage. The mermaid has been adopted enthusiastically by Norfolk and has even been carried off to our surrounding cities, across the nation from New Jersey to Florida, and as far off as Japan, so delightful is she.
