About the City of Norton

The City of Norton is the smallest independent city in the state of Virginia. Located off two main highways – U.S. 23 and U.S. Route 58 Alternate – and near the crossroads of three states, there are ample opportunities to enjoy this small Appalachian community’s natural, cultural, and historic landmarks.
