PRINCESS ANNE COUNTY COURTHOUSE BICENTENNIAL

The historic Princess Anne courthouse at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center, the sixth and last in the County's history, was completed for occupancy in 1823. This year the City is recognizing the 200th anniversary, and the Society will acknowledge the bicentennial by reflecting on the contentious site selection process, alterations in the building's appearance over time, its function as a gathering place, and life in the village that grew around it.

Speakers will be:

Virginia Beach Commissioner of the Revenue Phillip Kellam

City Historic Preservation Planner Mark Reed

 Society board member Stephen Mansfield.
