Port Royal is one the the areas oldest towns. It was first established in 1652 as a port at the head of sea-going navigation on the Rappahannock River during an era when waterways were the fastest and easiest method of transportation of people and property in the British Colony.
The town was named for the Roy Family. Dorothy Roy and her husband, John owned a warehouse chartered by the crown, a ferry service across the Rappahannock River to King George County, and a tavern. The chimneys of the Roy family are preserved landmarks today.
The Town was incorporated in 1744

Port Royal was first settled in 1652 and was chartered in 1744.
Tradition says that Port Royal was named after the Roy Family.
John and Dorothy Roy owned a warehouse chartered by the crown, a ferry service and a tavern.
Dorothy Roy was the first woman entrepreneur in the colonies.
These chimneys are all that remain of the Roy House.
The Municipal Pier is located at the bottom of King Street. The Pier hosts an annual Kids Fishing Day where kids are invited to come and learn from some of the town's old salts......they learn basic fishing tips, like how to tie a hook on their line, or tie a knot, but more importantly, they learn how to fish, they enjoy comradeship. They disconnect from electronics and enjoy nature. The Rappahannock Is a beautiful river. We are happy to share our little piece of it.
Port Royal is proud of our our heritage and we honor those who have served to ensure our freedoms as we know them today.
A Memorial proudly stands on town green as a solemn reminder to those of us who have family that have served. Bricks have been laid to honor family members either presently serving or who are no longer with us. Some of our bricks are in remembrance of loved ones dating back to 1672.
If you are interested in purchasing a brick please contact the town office.
Come and shop at one of our three antique stores. Each individually unique in their own way. Many treasurers await your visit.
Horne's Restaurant, an icon of the town offers not only fine cuisine, but a gift shop filled with interesting gifts and old fashioned trinkets to remind you of your visit to Port Royal.....
