Overview
While the Olde Wythe neighborhood in Hampton looks like many of the picturesque communities in America, its past is one all its own. The area's namesake, George Wythe, was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and a man opposed to slavery who freed his own slaves and suffered arsenic poisoning for his position. Olde Wythe battled a British invasion during the War of 1812 and witnessed intense ironclad battles fought near its shores during the Civil War. Join the Olde Wythe Neighborhood Association as it presents the colorful and harrowing history of Hampton's Olde Wythe.
