The county was founded in 1651 in the Virginia Colony and is named for Henry Stuart, Duke of Gloucester (third son of King Charles I of England). Gloucester County is rich in farmland, and the fishing industry is important to the state as well. It has a retail center located around the main street area of the county seat. Gloucester County and adjacent York 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.

Gloucester is a growing and increasingly changing county that is an integral part of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area. The Virginia Institute of Marine Science is based in Gloucester Point. VIMS is the College of William & Mary’s Marine Science postgraduate school. Despite an influx in development, Gloucester still maintains a large amount of rural and farmland (especially in the northern end of the county) which contributes to the County’s rich agricultural tradition. The county has a total area of 218 square miles of land, plus 70 square miles of water. Neighboring counties are: Middlesex to the north, King and Queen to the west, James City to the southwest, York to the south, and Matthews to the east.
