FaceBook Social Groups for Virginia Beach

The following tabs are for a few of the best social networking groups on FaceBook for locals in Virginia Beach.  You can come here and see all of the recent posts and images from people who have lived and loved everything about Virginia Beach for most of their lives.  Thank you to the group administrators and creators for providing the groups!

About the Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/IGrewUpInVirginiaBeach/

I Grew Up In Virginia Beach is the largest, longest running and most popular Facebook and internet social venue for sharing great memories of growing up in Virginia Beach. This is a family oriented group, so we ask each member’s cooperation in keeping content fun and positive. When you join I Grew Up In Virginia Beach and participate in this group, you also agree to RESPECT each other, the memories shared here, the group’s vision, our hometown and the administrators.

I Grew Up In Virginia Beach was created by Paul West in late February of 2010 with the following vision which remains the same today:

“I Grew Up in Virginia Beach is about reconnecting with long lost friends and bringing back great memories of growing up in Virginia Beach. It is a network for those who spent time in Virginia Beach – ‘back in the day’ looking to ‘log’ some of the history of those youthful days you enjoyed in Virginia Beach.”

I found a few old Polaroids of M&M Grocery Store, I assume in Va Beach. Where was it located? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

oceana blvd?

Old Dam Neck Road and General Booth Blvd.

Back in the day when the store was there, I believe that section of General Booth was called Oceana...changed maybe mid 80s.

i wanna say oceana & prosperity

It was still called Oceana when I left the beach 4 years ago. My grandparents lived there near the jet base on 'Plane Circle'!

Oceana Blvd (now Gen. Booth Blvd) & Old Dam Neck Rd. We used to go there when it was called Joe West Grocery.

Pictures?

Thanks y'all Maybe I will draw it. Wish my memory was betta.

My aunt and uncle lived on Old Damn Neck Road and I can remember it was hell trying to make a turn because of the M&M grocery store. I always hated trying to make a turn because there was usually traffic backed up a bit making it hard to get out.

I would love to have a copy of some if that is possible.

I remember it well. Never had time to stop in.

Someone posted a sign from the old Willis Wayside, in May. I can't find the post but the building may soon be demolished for a grocery store. Sad. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Just do a search on this page, I found 2 pics.

They would have to buy a lot of businesses to put a store there.

No way

Willis Wayside is advertising a demolition sale.

Should be a historic site. Sad

So sad

My studio is located in the Wayside Village Shoppes. They are not demolishing the building. The entrance to the grocery will be on the far side of the store that is currently there now.

Look up Copeland Signs on FB. They have the picture

Used as a hospital in WW2. Or rehab center.

Why do we need a grocery store on every corner? Smh.......

That is sad!

Noooooo!

Noooo!

Very sad being it is part of history and yhe citly once again not stepping up to save

Such a iconic business. I worked a burglary there in like 1974? It's really sad when you see the independent businesses vanish.

Yup, was a hospital a long long time ago.

That's awful!!!

Building was hospital during civil war caring for both confederates an union soldiers.

Someone should buy it and turn it into a tea room ..... use the rest of the space for small vendors to have kiosks. Florists to offer flower arranging classes. A mini version of the old waterside, except with no one selling aluminum Hello Kitty lunch boxes.

What?

What grocery store?

Comment on Facebook

Pocahontas Village? Is that what you are talking about?

I remember riding an ATC 90 there. They charged by the day I believe. It was very muddy when we went.

Mary K. Waldorf, people still remember your family & Skicoak Living Museum of the American Indian! ❤️

You have the name right my husband use to ride there also

It's called Skicoak. We owned the land through my high school days.it had ago cart track and dirt hills for biking!

Yes. Skicoak Living Museum of the American Indian. It was my family that ran it and when we moved to Roanoke Island it became a dirt bike park. I was particularly sad when it became apartments. Still the creek is there.... Our family loved growing up there.

Does anyone have pictures of it? I'd love to see them.

Pocahontas Village. Nice neighborhood.

The web page listed farther up is our families page about it.

Wow! Moved to lake smith terrace in 67' went to skicoak in the late 60's. Hard to believe It was there now, place is too built up!!

There was a house down near the oceanfront that everyone called the dollhouse. It had a dunebuggy in the driveway and the story was that the teenage girl that lived there had hunge herself in the living room. And then the mom went nuts and hung dolls. It was really chinese lanterns, but boy did we scare each other riding by that house! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

lol....and the old lady sat in front of the picture window with a shot gun....we used to go up to the house. I dont remember what it was but one of my friends stole something from the carport. Like a stuffed animal. Hahahha. I went back as a adult during the day just to know for sure.

We used to take people by there all the time to freak em out

I remember it. Scary

Yes it was back in Bay colony

I remember that story!

That was Dr. Shoen's house in Birdneck Point. He passed away not too long ago.

Totally remember that house.

It was real and so were the dolls. Danna Cullen

Went by there many times!

We use to ride by there frequently.
