The company was chartered by an act of the General Assembly of March 15, 1851 (1850/51 Va. Acts 72). It opened in 1852. On April 15, 1867 the Norfolk and Petersburg, South Side Railroad Company, Virginia and Kentucky Railroad Company, and Virginia and Tennessee Railroad Company merged to form the Atlantic, Mississippi & Ohio Railroad Company. That company defaulted in 1875 and on May 3, 1881 was reorganized as the Norfolk and Western Railroad Company.
