Initially Yorktown was laid out above the bluffs, but the thin strip of ground here between water and cliff was essential to the town's commercial life. Port facilities crowded the area - wharves, warehouses and stores as pictured here. These same facilities, and the excellent harbor, prompted Cornwallis to establish his base at Yorktown in the summer of 1781.
