The History of the City of Portsmouth

Portsmouth is one of the few cities in the U.S. state of Virginia. It is considered as an independent city, which is defined as a city that does not belong to any county in particular. In the U.S. Commonwealth of Virginia, there is a total of 38 cities that are independent. Geographically, the city of Portsmouth is part of the metropolitan area of Hampton Roads, which is a region in the state’s southwestern portion. Portsmouth is directly opposite from the city of Norfolk, which means it has a waterfront area overlooking the Elizabeth River.

The city of Portsmouth has a total area of 47 square miles, of which 34 square miles are made up of land, while the other 13 square miles are water. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city is home to a total of 95, 535 residents as of the year 2010.

In the early 60s, the site which would be the future location of Portsmouth was considered as a good area for shipbuilding. Since the location has a waterfront area that provides access to the Elizabeth River, many builders like John Wood, recognize the area’s potential. John Wood was the one who wrote a petition for a land grant to King James I of England. Once approved, the site was turned into a plantation community that would serve as the early location for the port along the Elizabeth River.

In 1752, the site was incorporated into a city with the name of Portsmouth, England. The founder, Colonel William Crawford, was the one responsible for dedicating space for a courthouse, market, jail and a church in order for the city to be incorporated under the act of the Virginia General Assembly. The town was also part of the Norfolk County, but became an independent city in 1858.

The shipbuilding industry is not much of an economic driver, until a shipbuilder by the name of Andrew Sprowle established the Gosport Shipyard. This is adjacent to the city. After the American Revolutionary War, Gosport Shipyard was owned by the state and sold to the federal government of the United States. However, the state of Virginia sided with the Confederate States of America, and the federal government feared that the Confederacy might take over the shipyard. The Gosport shipyard got burned down twice. It was rebuilt and changed to the name of Norfolk Naval Shipyard, even if it is located in the city of Portsmouth.
