Norfolk Then & Now



The body of water we now call the Hague has been called at various times in Norfolk’s history: the Glebe Creek, Smith’s Creek, Paradise Creek and Pudding Creek (a contraction of Put-In Creek since the water was deep enough for sea-going vessels to put in there). Seawalls were added along the shore in the 1890’s. Harry C. Mann who took the photo above was active in Norfolk between 1906 and 1922.
