Walk back in time, to the late 1800's and picture the thriving boat building and port town of Manteo. The Evans family were early settlers here, building their lovely white homeplace before the town was even incorporated. The Evans Brothers General Store and post office was a hub for supplies and a warm, winter gathering place for conversation and coffee around the traditional pot-bellied stove. The Evans family has lived and worked in that same place ever since.

Sadly, the wood frame general store burned in the great Manteo fire of 1939, so the sturdy brick building was constructed to serve as the increasingly-busy post office while the population of Manteo grew after the reconstruction. Today, Manteo is the county seat of Dare, and tourism thrives (pandemic aside!) with the arts, theater, festivals, fishing, restaurants, concerts, the Elizabethan Gardens and more. Little wonder the late Andy Griffith chose to make Manteo his home! This is a singular chance to name your price to own and re-develop a visible corner property in the town of Manteo.

Keep the monthly income of the apartments flowing while you decide the best use for this property, family owned since the 1800's.
