Adam Thoroughgood arrived in Virginia as an indentured servant in 1621.  He became a key figure in the settlement of the South Hampton Roads area.  His home is estimated to have been built sometime between 1680 and 1720, making it one of the oldest standing homes in America.  The property became a museum in the 1950's and is now owned by the City of Virginia Beach, VA.  In the 1960's it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Adam Thoroughgood House is open daily for public tours and sits on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the Western Branch of the Lynnhaven River.  The address is:  1636 Parish Rd, Virginia Beach and is located in the back of the Thoroughgood neighborhood off North Independence Blvd. Hours and Fees Open: Tuesday - Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 ...

Great, will my property taxes rise again? I'm 2 days behind in reading the newspaper so this may not be new to some readers. WHAT? RAISE TAXES!!!!! That's what I was thinking when I read that the city is looking to build or improve some Bayside centers. Projects to be included are an animal shelter and a Bayside recreation center. I thought, "Wow, there is a really nice rec center on First Court Road. I wonder how full it is? I wonder if it's so full they need a new one?" I have to admit the animal shelter might be a needed project but with these new buildings comes additional expenses, staff, utilities. I don't think they are going raise the tax then lower the tax once the projects are completed. I wonder, can't they find the money somewhere within the system already?
