In the mid 1800’s, several small communities dotted the northern Outer Banks where present-day Corolla is located. The earliest residents were fishermen and hunters who tended gardens and raised livestock that ran wild along with the Spanish Mustangs that can still be found roaming the beaches today. Early Corolla inhabitants would travel by boat to the mainland, where most people preferred to settle, to sell goods they would grow, catch or find washed up from the many shipwrecks off the coast.
They would also make a living guiding and helping wealthy sportsmen traveling in from the north to hunt and fish along the Currituck Sound. This is why the famous couple, The Knights, came to build the magnificent home we know today as Whalehead in historic Corolla - as a place to stay while hunting and fishing the magnificent area.
With the inclusion of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, which was built in 1873, Corolla Village's turn-of-the-century restored private homes, schoolhouse and chapel, come together in present day to provide an authentic peek into what life was like on the island as it slowly developed.
