Economy of Hampton VA
Hampton's economy is driven by large infrastructure assets. The first economic engine of the area is the Port of Hampton Roads, close to Hampton. After the significant contraction during the economic downturn in the 21st century, the area is now rebounding, but at a pace slower than anticipated.
The other revenue stream that is still standing strong in the area are the academic establishments and tourism. Tourism remains as a large contributor to the area's economy, as well as the state of Virginia as a whole. It would not be unheard of for Hampton VA corporate apartments to be used by those taking an extra long vacation to the Hampton/Virginia Beach area. The local councils have also created business and technology parks to boost the area's economic diversity and move dependence away from the government's military establishments only.
Hampton VA corporate housing residents can enjoy a very interesting history which surrounds them. Old Point Comfort, the eventual site of Fort Monroe, was first identified and occupied by Captain Christopher Newport and his men when they arrived from London, in December of 1606. Old Point Comfort was chosen as a strategic site due to its location on the confluence of three of Virginia's main rivers and was calculated as the strongest militarily strategic position.
In 1619, the first ship carrying indentured slaves, Antonio and Isabella docked in Hampton. They were the first servants to set foot on American soil. In January of 1624, their child was the first African American to be born on American soil.
Fort Monroe was the site of present day Hampton. Both played major roles in the Civil War as well as the Revolutionary War. In the Revolutionary War, Hampton was burnt down and rebuilt again. The same happened during the civil war.
