The “Path of History” is a walking trail that tells the story of Portsmouth’s unique relationship with the local military and, especially, the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. It stretches from Fort Nelson Park outside the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center to Gosport Park located just across the street from Quarters A at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. The path meanders through the Olde Towne Historic Neighborhood. Maps and guides may be downloaded from this site or picked up at the Welcome Center.
