Church point is a beautifully manicured suburban neighborhood located in Northwest Virginia Beach. The neighborhood has a wonderful community feel and active home owner’s association, which regularly organizes events, including bar-be-ques, music in the park, happy hour, parades and a charity 5K.
The area has a long history dating back to 1639 when King Charles I of England granted Captain Adam Thoroughgood 5,350 acres of land along the Lynnhaven River. Church Point is located on a portion of this land and includes the historic Thoroughgood house, built in 1680.
The Adam Thoroughgood House was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1960 and is one of the oldest surviving colonial homes in Virginia. The House is open six days per week for guided tours. Special programs for schools, scouts and the general public are offered throughout the year. The Adam Thoroughgood House has been operated by the Department of Museums and Cultural Arts since 1999 and was acquired by the City of Virginia Beach in 2003.
