VIRGINIA BEACH – Princess Anne County will be remembered through a Local History Series, sponsored by the Virginia History Museums, to mark the 325th anniversary of its formation.

The county, which became part of the city of Virginia Beach, will be discussed in lectures from local and regional historians, beginning with Councilwoman Barbara Henley on April 9.

Henley represents the Princess Anne district and is the author of “Glimpses of Down-County History: Southern Princess Anne County.” She will kick off the history series with a talk about her research into the area’s history.

The event is in the Colonial Education Center at the Lynnhaven House. Tickets are $20 and include lunch. The deadline to reserve a spot is April 6.

The next Local History Series event is May 7, featuring speaker Stephen Mansfield, author of “Princess Anne County and Virginia Beach: A Pictorial History.”
