Books by Historical Society Member Walter A. Whitehurst
Walt Whitehurst, a member of the Princess Anne County/Virginia Beach Historical Society, has written a book entitled Pungo Tales (Headlight Press, Statesboro, GA, 2011). Walt left Pungo in 1951 to attend college, and later served as a missionary in Chile and as a pastor in Virginia. He
returned to Pungo in 1999 to find many of his childhood friends still here. As they reminisced about the early years in Princess Anne County, Walt decided to write down many of their stories to preserve for future generations these anecdotes about days gone by.
The books are available from the author.
Call Walt at (757) 426-0230 or email WaltPungo@aol.com,
or Walter A. Whitehurst, 1761 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23456.
