Hampton-Newport News


Poquoson (Po-ko-Son), whose Native American name roughly translates to “Great Marsh,” is situated on a peninsula of eighty-seven miles of scenic shoreline. This secluded waterfront city is home to generations of watermen who have been harvesting the bounty of the Chesapeake Bay since 1631. The Hampton-Newport News tour showcases Poquoson, and features breathtaking waterfront homes with views of scenic rivers, native marshlands, and indigenous waterfowl. Tour highlights include a unique mid-century modern bungalow designed by Ling Po, an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright, and the Virginia Cooperative Extension Poquoson Learning Garden. This charming waterfront community has not been featured during Historic Garden Week in over twenty years.
