As part of our coverage of the renovation of the Cavalier, The Virginian-Pilot will take you on a photographic journey from the beginning in 1926 through the renovation of this iconic Virginia Beach landmark on the hill. This high-quality, hard-cover book will showcase photographs from the Pilot and Cavalier archives as well as numerous public and private collections.
The rich history of the Cavalier is linked to leaders and personalities who have shaped our nation and culture throughout the last nine decades. Photographs tell the hotel's amazing story and bring into focus the impact it has had on our region and beyond.
This limited edition commemorative book will cover the Cavalier's construction, opening day, its heyday and famous guests, the military takeover during WWII, through its recent renovation and grand reopening!
My husband and I drove 4 hours to stay at The Cavalier in order to visit friends in the area. I love historical places and the back stories about them. I purchased this book from the hotel, and in fact took my copy from my room. After I gently peruse it, I’ll gift it to my daughter who’ll be moving back to Virginia. She’s an insatiable history buff and will add this collector’s book to her growing library of vintage books.
I love the history and photos of this grand hotel.
We love this beautiful history book. It is perfect. It came super quick, too. A very unique coffee table book you'll actually read.
