Colonial Place and Riverview: One Hundred Years of History by Artemis Stoll, Susan VanHecke, Dr. Norman Pollock



Since their early 20th-century beginnings as streetcar suburbs of Norfolk, Virginia, the adjoining historic neighborhoods of Colonial Place and Riverview have evolved into a vibrant, active community that a diverse citizenry now calls home. "Colonial Place and Riverview: One Hundred Years of History," an elegant hardcover volume, beautifully captures the neighborhoods' fascinating story in text and more than 100 photographs. From the area's founders to the trailblazers who made it among the first successfully integrated districts in Virginia, the community's history is filled with people who shared a unique and special vision for Colonial Place and Riverview. That commitment to community continues today. With one of the largest and most active civic leagues in the city, Colonial Place and Riverview remain at the forefront of civic involvement. Both neighborhoods proudly claim placement on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register, accomplished through the hard work and dedication of scores of resident volunteers. Shaded by oaks and crape myrtles and cooled by riverfront breezes, the area is naturally beautiful, offering ready access for all to the shoreline. The community's greatest asset, though, its its people, a diverse cross-section of citizens that includes professionals, artists, academecians, students, tradespeople, military personnel and elected officials. The story of Colonial Place and Riverview is one of people: people caring for their community, their city, and each other. "Colonial Place and Riverview: One Hundred Years of History" is a great family heritage piece, a wonderful gift, and a treasured keepsake for all. Only 1,000 copies of this limited edition pictorial were printed. Each book is signed by the authors.
