The Village of Norfolk was organized in 1881. The settlers proclaimed “North Fork” to be their permanent post office address, named after the river, but suggested “Norfork” as the simplest compounding of “North Fork”. Postal authorities, thinking the word had been misspelled, changed the spelling to “Norfolk”.
Norfolk offers many recreational and cultural attractions for all ages. It is a safe, affordable community with manufacturing, farming (both livestock and grain), education, retailing and wholesaling.
With a population of 25,000, you get that small town feel while having great options for shopping, eating, and so much more.
