St Paul's Blvd & City Hall Ave, Norfolk Virginia
The present structure was completed in 1739, replacing a church originally constructed in the late 1680s or 1690s. The first church built on the property was erected as a "Chapel of Ease" around 1641. It was burned out when Lord Dunmore bombarded Norfolk on January 1, 1776 and was rebuilt after the American Revolution. Its congregation split in the 1790s, one group forming Christ Church and the other remaining in the Borough Church. It was used by a Baptist congregation between 1802 and 1822. A new congregation was created in the 1820s and the church was then renamed St. Paul's.
