Queen City is one of the most, unique communities in the entire United States. At over 200 years old, the small community consists of approximately 35 homes and is separated by two cities, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, Va. A significant percentage of the population are African Americans, which include many seniors who are direct descendants of the founding families who began settling into the community, as far back as 1785.
The entire community of Queen City celebrates their legacy of family and fellowship during the annual 4th of July Queen City Day weekend.
The community was originally located in Norfolk County, until the expansion of Princess Anne County, now Virginia Beach, encompassed part of the community leaving it divided between Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach, Va
