Additional Details:
Old St. Paul's Church, on Church Street, was built in 1739; it was formerly called "Old church", but was given the name of St. Paul in 1832. It is situated in an old cemetery, having many very old tombstones, and is to day the only authentic building in Norfolk that antedates the Revolutions by 50 years. Its picturesque, vine-clad walls were all that was left after Lord Dunmore's bombardment of the city in 1776.
