About Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a historic city located in southeastern Virginia, just across the Elizabeth River from Norfolk. Established in 1752, it is one of the oldest cities in the region and has a rich history that dates back to the colonial era. The city played a significant role in the American Revolutionary War, serving as a supply base for the Continental Army and Navy. Today, Portsmouth is known for its charming historic district, which boasts a variety of well-preserved 18th and 19th-century buildings.

As a port city, Portsmouth has a long-standing connection to freight transportation. The city's strategic location on the Elizabeth River has made it an important hub for maritime commerce throughout its history. The Port of Virginia, located in nearby Norfolk, is one of the largest ports on the East Coast and plays a crucial role in the region's freight transportation network. Many goods and products pass through the port, including containerized cargo, automobiles, and bulk commodities. The port's close proximity to Portsmouth has undoubtedly contributed to the city's economic growth and development over the years.
