In the early part of the 1800s, Currituck County became known for its fishing villages and peaceful way of life. The Albemarle Chesapeake Waterway, which opened in 1859, became a vital water passage from Maine to Florida.
Known today as the Intracoastal Waterway, it separates Currituck County’s southern mainland from the northern mainland. Marinas and restaurants serve the pleasure and commercial vessels that navigate Waterway. By the late 1800s, Currituck County gained a reputation as a “sportsman’s paradise.” Wealthy industrialists were attracted to the county for its abundance of wildlife and numerous hunt clubs, including the Pine Island Club, and Currituck Shooting Club. One of the best venues for seeing how the wealthy lived in Corolla is The Whalehead Club, which has been renovated into a historic house museum.
Near the Whalehead Club stands an additional restored structure: the Currituck Beach Lighthouse. First lit in the mid-1800s, the lighthouse warned ships hugging the chain of barrier islands along the North Carolina Coast. Currituck County is now one of the fastest growing counties in North Carolina. Unprecedented growth has been highlighted by a careful balance between the environment and development.
The Currituck Outer Banks are a blend of a past that is rich in heritage with a vision for a progressive tomorrow. (https://www.visitcurrituck.com/visitor-info/history)
