History

Vienna was founded in 1706. It thrived on trade, shipbuilding and tobacco farming. Throughout the next century, the British would raid the town repeatedly, and also during the War of 1812. This led to the building of a wall across the city's waterfront on the Nanticoke River. This wall is in ruin today.
