Nimmo Church Princess Anne Historical Society Celebrating Our History, Our City, Our County

Virginia Beach (resort)

In 1906 Virginia Beach became a town and a town hall was built.  In 1963 the resort City of Virginia Beach merged with Princess Anne County, officially becoming "The World's Largest Resort City" and grew into the City of Virginia Beach as we know it today!
