Norfolk, Virginia is located at the mouth of Elizabeth, Nansemond and James rivers close to the outlet of Chesapeake Bay on the Atlantic. With the cities of Portsmouth, Newport News and Hampton, Norfolk forms the Hampton Roads port, which is one of the world's greatest natural harbours. It is also a major national seaport and military centre, having the largest shipbuilding and repair centre in the world, US Marine, U.S. Navy's Atlantic Fleet, Coast Guard, Armed Forces Staff College, NATO facilities and Langley Air Force Base with astronaut training centre. Norfolk is the site of Chrysler and Mariners Museums, with the latter featuring the most extensive international collection of mariner's artifacts in America - maps, ship models, scrimshaw, unique watercraft and paintings. Nearby tourists can visit Colonial Williamsburg.
The streets of Norfolk were laid out in 1682. The early growth of the town was based on the West Indies trade and shipping of products from the plantations of North Carolina and Virginia. Every building in Norfolk, except St Paul's Church (1739), was destroyed during the American War of Independence. Rebuilt after the war, the city became an important maritime and shipbuilding centre but its enormous military growth started during World War I.
