The town of Kempsville was originally named Kemp's Landing and was a colonial port at the head of the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River. The county consolidated with the small resort city of Virginia Beach in 1963. Explosive growth during the 1960s and 1970s transformed Kempsville into a sprawling suburban community. Kempsville is part of the largest independent city in Virginia.
