“The Marine Observation Tower, a.k.a. the Pagoda, was a gift to the Commonwealth of Virginia and the City of Norfolk from the Taiwan Provincial Government. During a good will trade mission to Norfolk in 1983, Dr. Lee Teng-Hui, then Governor of Taiwan and, later, the President of the Republic of China, proposed the riverfront gift. In 1989, the two-story octagon structure was built on and around the pillars that previously supported a 500,000 gallon molasses storage tank. Materials for the tower were manufactured in Taiwan and shipped to Norfolk where the Pagoda was meticulously assembled by artisans from Taiwan.” Read More Here
“The Elizabeth River Trail runs for 10.5 miles between Norfolk State University and Norfolk International Terminals. Highlights along the trail include Town Point Park, the USS Wisconsin, Fort Norfolk, Plum Point Park, and several of Norfolk’s historic neighborhoods. Much of this trail is off-road, and efforts to get more of it off road continue. The trail occupies in part a railroad right of way and yet incorporates a sea-faring history as it follows Norfolk’s varied and highly interesting waterfront.” Read More Here or Check out the Map Below! – Photo Credit the Elizabeth River Trail Foundation
