York County was established in 1634 as one of eight original shires in Colonial Virginia and has figured prominently in the political and economic history of Virginia and the Nation. The Port of Yorktown has been the seat of local government since 1691.
York County was the site of the final major battle of the American Revolution where, on October 19, 1781, British General Lord Cornwallis surrendered his forces to American and French forces under General George Washington.
Yorktown also figured prominently in the Civil War serving as a major port to supply both northern and southern towns depending on who held Yorktown at the time.
Today, Yorktown is a living part of a national treasure known as the Historic Triangle of Yorktown, Jamestown and Williamsburg, connected by the Colonial Parkway, and visited by millions of tourists from all over the world.
