Virginia Beach Seeking Public Input for Historic Homes Planning

Virginia Beach Seeking Public Input for Historic Homes Planning
July 1, 2021

The Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department and Virginia Beach History Museums want your help in planning the future of the Francis Land House, Lynnhaven House and Thoroughgood House!

History Associates Incorporated (HAI) is working with the Virginia Beach History Museums to create a new interpretive plan to help improve the visitor experience at the three historic homes. As part of the plan creation and public input process, HAI and the Virginia Beach History Museums seek feedback from the Virginia Beach community via an online public input survey.

Virginia Beach residents can access and complete the survey at publicinput.com/H1003. The survey will be open through Sunday, Aug. 1. Please contact the Virginia Beach History Museums at vbhistory@vbgov.com or call 757-385-5100 if you have any questions.
