Princess Anne, Virginia

Princess Anne is a community located in the independent city of Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA at the junction of Princess Anne Road and North Landing Road near the West Neck River. The community is the site to the Municipal Center, where most of the major city, state, and federal offices are located, including the federal courthouse, jail, and city hall. Prior to the consolidation of Virginia Beach and Princess Anne County in 1963, this community served as the county seat and was sometimes referred to as Princess Anne Courthouse. The old courthouse dates to the 1600s. Traffic is a major concern for the area as the Municipal Center is a major employment center that is only accessible by two-lane roads. In recent years, the community has seen a large increase in the construction of large homes in the area.
