While the sun shined brightly, it was a mere 8 degrees in South Norfolk this morning, with snow piled high after a Jan. 4 blizzard blew nearly 11 inches of the white stuff into the historic district overnight.

South Norfolk welcomes the holidays — and YOU!

Before you can say “Yuletide,” a visit to Historic South Norfolk will leave you awash like a baptism in the warmth of holiday spirit, harmonious carols and jingling bells. Tune in to 2WD at 101.3 for the holiday tunes as you tour. (Click for playlist). This year, a high percentage of historic homes are decorated; some adorned in traditional garlands and bows with minimal lights, and some that likely may be seen from space, lighted with all the gusto of Clark Griswold, himself. If you enter on Park Avenue off Bainbridge, be sure to slow down as you pass...
