Princess Anne County Training School (eventually named Union Kempsville High School, was the first high school for African Americans in Princess Anne County, now known as Virginia Beach. It operated from 1938-1969, when it closed due to integration of area schools. Today the legacy of the school continues with the establishment of the museum which shares stories of family, community, sacrifice, and the importance of education. It is also unique in that it is a city run museum inside a public high school.
