MUNDEN POINT



According to an article I read in the Virginian-Pilot (March 22, 1998), Munden Point was the end of the line for the Norfolk, Virginia Beach & Southern Railroad. Train service ran from 1898 until the 1940s. Today it's an isolated city park in Creeds (near the North Carolina border), but back in the day it was a busy destination. Located along the North Landing River, steamships docked here bringing produce from North Carolina. This cargo would then be loaded onto the trains bound for points north.

My photograph shows the remnants of a pier where steamships used to dock. The pier is on private property, so this is as close as I could get to it. According to the article, there aren't any remnants of the railroad left.
