Navy Submarine Torpedo Facility (NSTF) is a tenant command located onboard the Naval Weapons Station Yorktown. NSTF is geographically at the northern part of the Virginia Peninsula of Hampton Roads and is about 1 hour from Naval Station Norfolk. The Peninsula is comprised of the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, and Poquoson and the counties of York and James City. The Hampton Roads area is rich in history, recreation, commercial activity, transportation and housing.
Newport News history began in the 1600’s and is named for Christopher Newport, who was the captain of the “Discovery”, one of the original ships that carried the Jamestown settlers to the new world. Even back in the 1600's, the early settlers imagined the unique opportunities in Newport News. Located between Williamsburg and Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Newport News stretches some 25 miles long and is bordered by the James River to the west. The city is internationally known as home of Newport News Shipbuilding, the largest private employer in the state.
Founded in 1607, the city of Hampton is the oldest continuous English speaking settlement in America. Surrounded by various Hampton Roads waterways and the Chesapeake Bay, it occupies 55 square miles of the Peninsula. Hampton is home to Langley Air Force Base, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and many other commercial enterprises.
The city of Williamsburg is no more than a few miles from NSTF. This area is known around the world for the Colonial Williamsburg historical area, one of the most visited tourist sites in America. In addition, Williamsburg has the renowned College of William and Mary, the second oldest institution of higher learning in the country.
JAMES CITY COUNTY
James City County contains the site of the nation’s first English-speaking settlement, Jamestown, founded in 1607. In addition to its rich history, James City County is home to major tourist attractions and businesses; the Anheuser-Busch brewery; Busch Gardens; The Old Country theme park; Water Country USA, and many planned business and residential centers including an extensive collection of outlet shopping malls.
Poquoson offers homeowners a peaceful and friendly place to live. The 15-mile city is almost completely bounded by water. Over 60 miles of shoreline makes this a great place to live for the city’s residents.
Yorktown, the county seat of York County, is the site of the surrender of Lord Cornwallis to General Washington, thereby ending the struggle for independence. The large county is predominately rural where Peninsula workers enjoy raising their families.
