The Cannonball Trail

Various Sites, Norfolk, VA 23510 (757) 441-1526

A walk-it-yourself tour, through 400 years of Norfolk and American history. The Trail winds along the shoreline of the Elizabeth River and through the districts of Downtown Norfolk. Walk the cobbled streets of West Freemason – the earliest residential streetscape in Norfolk; stroll downtown, where turn-of-the-century buildings stand in the shadows of modern structures. Throughout downtown, narrative plaques mark places and events of historic interest. You’ll even find a Revolutionary War-era cannonball still lodged in the wall of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church!
