We, Phyllis Speidell,
John Sheally and
Karla Smith, have provided an oral history based
the "coffee table" book,
Peninsula in Passage,
that captures the voice and sense of place of the
Bennett's Creek/Driver area, one of the most dramatically
changing sections of Hampton Roads.
The book - hardcover, full color, 224 pages - was
published under the auspices of Suffolk River Heritage,
a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the preservation
and promotion of local history.
Peninsula in Passage documents the
colorful past history of the community as well as
its more recent development. It serves as a happy
reminder of shared heritage for longtime residents
as well as an introduction to the area for newcomers.
Our goal is to further a sense of community in this
rapidly evolving region.
