Stop in and enjoy the newly reopened Norfolk Pagoda

NORFOLK, Va. - The Pagoda in Downtown Norfolk has reopened its restaurant and tea house with a new crew running the kitchen.

The Marine Observation Tower, better known as the Pagoda, was a gift to the City of Norfolk from the Taiwan Provincial Government. In 1989, it was built on and around the pillars that held a 500,000 gallon molasses storage tank.

Materials from the tower were manufactured in Taiwan and shipped to Norfolk.
