Known as Norfolk's Twin city. It is located west and southwest of Norfolk across the Elizabeth River. It was originally part of Norfolk County before it was established as a seaport in 1752 and later incorporated as a town in 1836. Portsmouth continued to grow through a series of annexations until the current city limits were completed when the city secured parts of Western Branch, Westwood, and Churchland from Norfolk County in 1968.
