One of seven major cities that make up the Hampton Roads metropolitan areas, Hampton is an independent city in Virginia and thus is not part of any Virginia county. Despite its size, this quaint historical town features a wide array of businesses and industrial enterprises, retail and residential areas, historical sites and miles of beautiful, scenic beaches. The Virginia yellow pages provides a list of the many business and industrial enterprises in the city.
As the oldest continuously occupied town in the United States, Hampton traces its history back to the time of the first English settlers. Three years after the first permanent English Settlement in Jamestown in 1607, colonists established their own small town with a small Anglican church in Hampton. Years later, Hampton along with Fort Monroe would play several major roles during the American Civil War. Unlike most of Virginia that became part of the Confederate States of America, Hampton joined the Union. As a border between the Union and Confederate state, the city served as a symbolic site of early refuge for former slaves and later became the first self-contained African American Community in the United States.
