Great Neck Point
Great Neck Point is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the state of Virginia, and perhaps even the United States. Before the English settlers came in 1607, Great Neck Point was the site of a major town of Chesopeian Native Americans. Many artifacts from this time can still be found if you dig hard enough.
Modern development of Great Neck Point began in 1938 when the residents of the colonial-era Adam Keeling House began selling off small parcels of land to friends and family.
In the 1960s and ’70s, the remaining land was sold off for development. Consequently, what you see today is a waterfront neighborhood, centrally located in the Great Neck area of Virginia Beach.
Modern Great Neck Point offers you quick and efficient access to the rest of Virginia Beach and Norfolk. Easily accessible to the interstate, and just minutes to Chesapeake Bay, Town Center and the Ocean Front, this is definitely a convenient place to live.
Great Neck Point is strategically located near two beaches, the Atlantic Ocean, and Chesapeake Bay is never far away. The biggest hub of shopping in the Great Neck area is the Great Neck Square Shopping Center. However, if you are looking for a more “big city” feel for your shopping experience, you can travel to the bigger malls and shopping centers found in nearby Norfolk.
