Munden Point Rail Line

In the Spring of 1898, the Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Southern Railroad, which operated the rail route from Norfolk to the oceanfront, completed work on a new Currituck Division extending through the lower end of Princess Anne County.  Within two years, the parent line was reorganized as part of the Norfolk and Southern and the branch came to be known as the Munden Point Line.

Commemorating the Centennial of the Munden Point branch, the Princess Anne County/Virginia Beach Historical Society celebrated on March 29, 1998, with a program event featuring Joe Burroughs, a sixth generation Princess Anne County farmer, who spoke on the impact of the rail line on agriculture, and Stephen Mansfield who spoke on how the Munden Point Branch came to be built.  Exhibit tables with railroad artifacts were also on display.
