Ghent Neighborhood League
The Ghent Neighborhood League is a civic association for the area bound by the Hague, Colonial Avenue, south of 21st Street and Hampton Boulevard. Membership is open to all property owners and renters living within this area. The membership fee is $10 a year.
The league’s board, which meets every third Thursday of the month, at the Chrysler Museum of Art, welcomes all Ghent residents to its meetings, during which matters of importance to the neighborhood are discussed.
Named for the Treaty of Ghent in 1814 that ended the War of 1812, Ghent was the first suburb of Norfolk, created around the turn of the century. Its buildings, for the most part, date back to the era between 1890 and 1920 and now encompass single-family homes, townhouses, condos and apartment and commercial buildings. In August 2001, North Ghent – the name given to the area between Olney and Princess Anne – was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The league’s newsletter, which provides detailed information on issues of interest to the neighborhood, is published three to four times a year. While Ghent residents receive it by mail, free of charge, the newsletter also is available in limited quantities at the businesses of newsletter advertisers, the Van Wick library, the Naro theater and many restaurants.
