Gloucester County is a county located in Virginia and named after the historical English market town of Gloucester. Formed in 1651 in the Virginia Colony, the county was named for Henry Stuart, Duke of Gloucester (third son of King Charles I of England).
Gloucester County is both rich in farmland and important to the Virginia fishing industry, and has a retail center located around the Main Street area. While Gloucester has rural and small-town qualities, it is still considered part of the Hampton Roads region of southeastern Virginia. Gloucester County and adjacent Matthews County are linked by the George P. Coleman Memorial Bridge, a toll facility across the York River carrying U.S. Route 17 to the Virginia Peninsula area.
