County of York

Yorktown is most remembered as the site where Lord Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington, effectively ending the American Revolutionary War. But even before the struggle for independence, the town was a bustling and prosperous 18th century seaport, having been established by the 1691 Act of Ports. Yorktown also witnessed major Civil War activity. Its fortifications held off a Union army attack during the Peninsula Campaign of 1862.

Today, York County is home to about 65,000 residents. York County is located in southeastern Virginia on the York River and is part of the Historic Triangle, which includes Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. For over 375 years, it has been a desirable place to visit, live, and work. The County has great natural beauty, one of the top-rated public school systems in Virginia, excellent recreational and social opportunities, low crime rates, a strong dedicated workforce, abundant green space, a mild climate, and an overall outstanding quality of life.
