Granby Street: A Downtown Norfolk Walking Tour

May 4 2024

Granby Street

Granby Street has been the historic core of Downtown Norfolk and its commercial center for more than two centuries. This tour will focus on Granby’s evolution; from a strip of tenement housing and merchant shops, to the bustling district benefitting from the industrial alert evolution in the 19th century, to its disrepair in the mid-20th Century, the pedestrian mall of the 1980s, and its role in revitalizing Downtown Norfolk in the decades since
