History of Kempsville

Kempsville is a borough in Virginia Beach City, Virginia. In the 1600s, the area that is present-day Kempsville was acquired by industrious English immigrant George Kempe. Originally called Kempe's Landing, the area was a colonial port for tobacco shipments and other cargo goods along the Elizabeth River's Eastern Branch. It became a major shipping point for Princess Anne County, which was a large producer of wheat and corn.

In November of 1775, John Ackiss and six other men were killed in the Battle of Kemp's Landing by the British forces of the Colony of Virginia Governor Lord Dunmore. They would be the first Virginian causalities of the American Revolutionary War. On November 16th of that year, Lord Dunmore road into Kempsville triumphantly. George Logan – a Princess Anne County Justices and Loyalist during the war – entertained the Lord at his home.

In 1778, the Princess Anne County Courthouse was moved to Kemp's Landing – the county seat for Princess Anne County until 1824. The Town of Kempsville was later incorporated on May 5, 1783, in Princess Anne County. By 1922, the beautiful country village of Kempsville was home to two churches, a brick school building, and several general merchandise stores. Crops grown in the area include:

  • Potatoes
  • Cotton
  • Corn
  • Truck Crops

In the formation of the City of Virginia Beach in 1963, the Town of Kempsville was established as one of its seven boroughs. The other six boroughs are Virginia Beach, Pungo, Bayside, Blackwater, Princess Anne and Lynnhaven. During the 1960s and 1970s, the economic growth of the area resulted in an increase in the area's population. Kempsville became a sprawling suburban community. Today, only the Carraway House and Pleasant Hall remain as a relic of the Revolutionary War period.
