Introducing OBXMADE The Outer Banks is known as a premier tourist destination, a place where people come to get away from it all and enjoy life in its natural state. While tourism is the #1 driver of our local economy and understanding that the commercial ďŹ shing industry has a long-standing history, the Outer Banks region has grown from those roots to include small manufacturers (boat building, screen printing, cabinet making, etc.), locally branded restaurants, retail shops and more. Whether the product is big or small, handmade or mass produced, OBXMADE rewards the ingenuity, passion, talent and time that goes into each one. The pride the Outer Banks region takes in its local roots is strong; take part in celebrating and continuing the tradition that is OBXMADE. OBXMADE is a new creative branding initiative of the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce. For more information contact Karen Brown at the Chamber at (252) 441-8144 or email kbrown@outerbankschamber.com

leveraging the strength of both organizations to market our area and handle economic development,” says Karen Brown, Chamber president & CEO. “The Chamber is taking on a larger role in growing our community, including responding to new business prospects, cataloging available sites and buildings and launching a new section on our website dedicated to economic development and demographics.” The partnership is yielding fast results. A new Dare County company is adding jobs and more than $1 million of investment to the area and an Australian company that has a product important to the boat building industry has expressed interest in making eastern North Carolina its home. “We’re meeting with individual business owners, gathering demographics and assessing skills gaps in the community, and responding with training that bridges the gaps,” says Brown. “We even help with things like disaster planning, succession or financial planning for example—all highly confidential—by connecting them with professional, third party resources.”

The Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce welcomes new businesses to the islands.

Events like Morning Schmooze helps members build business relationships. Moreover, the Chamber is helping businesses capitalize on small batch and artisan products made exclusively in the region, adding value and creating recognition in the new OBXMADE branding program. “We’re bringing attention to our creative economy WWW.OUTERBANKSCHAMBER.COM

Attending networking events also allows members to share their products. and letting everyone know we produce exquisite products from jewelry, pottery, art, baked goods and rum, to the full spectrum of creative items found only in Dare and Currituck counties and Ocracoke Island,” says Brown. “We’re managing the legal work to secure the trademark for the OBXMADE brand.” Raising the bar for the community as a whole and creating an excellent quality of life, the Chamber’s Leadership OBX program is developing a pipeline of fresh talent and inspired business leaders with deep community connections. “The concept is to expose them to government, business and nonprofits during the course of the sixmonth program and teach them about the community,” 12

An architectural masterpiece spanning pristine waters, the new Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, crossing the Oregon Inlet between Hatteras and Bodie islands, will soon be complete. “Its sheer presence is a wonderful thing to see,” says Allen Moran, member of the North Carolina Board of Transportation. “It’s going to be a great asset to the state, the county and the folks on Hatteras Island. Construction will be complete in 2019.” The new bridge replaces the existing one, and for commercial fishermen, sportsmen and anglers, it greatly enhances safety. “It’s higher than the old bridge and has nine navigational spans, 300 feet wide, so there’s much more room for fisherman to cross under the bridge,” says Moran. “It’s a huge improvement.” The Bonner Bridge is the first in North Carolina to use stainless reinforcing steel, adding protection against saltwater corrosion and reducing maintenance costs.

Bridge projects are helping passengers easily navigate the Outer Banks. Another new bridge will soon be serving the Outer Banks too. Groundbreaking will begin shortly on a 2.4mile portion of state Highway 12, building a bridge to replace a portion of the road prone to breaches during

storms. The “jug handle” project spans from the southern end of the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge over the Pamlico Sound into Rodanthe. The targeted completion date is 2020. l By Cathy Cuthbertson

Avon

Like many other Outer Banks towns, Avon got its name from post office officials. Formerly known as Kinnakeet, officials renamed the town in 1883 as Avon, likely named after the English river.

Buxton Another city with a post office-related name change is Buxton, which was formerly known as “The Cape.”

Many of the towns on the Outer Banks have unique names, including Duck, Nags Head, Wanchese and Kill Devil Hills, among others. decided to name the town based on a well-known feature: the many ducks inhabiting the area.

Frisco Although Frisco was formerly known as Trent, the folks at the post office in 1898 changed its name to Frisco. The exact inspiration for this particular name is unknown.

Hatteras Village Hatteras Village derives its name from an area just a few miles north that early settlers called “Hatorask.”

Hyde County Although Hyde County was originally named the “Wickham” precinct, town planners renamed it Hyde after Edward Hyde, who was governor of North Carolina from 1711 to 1712.

Kill Devil Hills “As a resident of Kill Devil Hills, I personally find the legends linking the town’s name to the rum trade very fascinating,” says Samantha Crisp, director of the Outer Banks History Center. “William Byrd, a famed colonial Caption 18

Instead of implicating the neighbor, Ike said the devil had stolen it and Ike was forced to kill him.

that it “stems” from the flower rodantha.

Salvo Legend has it that during the Civil War, sailors were traveling past the Hatteras Island coast and couldn’t identify where they where. When one of the sailors told the ship’s captain, the captain reportedly said, “Give it a salvo anyway.” The sailor wrote “Salvo” on the map, and the rest is history.

Southern Shores Kitty Hawk is famous for flight and hunting geese, also known as Killy Honker.

Kitty Hawk While there are many rumors and legends circulating about how Kitty Hawk got its name, the most popular theory is that it comes from what the Native Americans called hunting geese, which was “Killy Honker” or “Killy Honk.”

Manns Harbor The fishing town of Manns Harbor got its name from a German boat captain who found shelter at the harbor during a storm.

Manteo As the county seat of Dare County, Manteo was named for a Native American named Manteo. Manteo and another Indian named Wanchese traveled to London and acted as a liaison between his tribe and the English settlers.

This vacation paradise was incorporated as a municipality in 1979. To sell real estate and attract tourists, artist and developer Frank Stick named the town “Southern Shores” as a marketing strategy.

Wanchese Wanchese is another Native American who traveled to England with Manteo and got to know the English settlers. While his counterpart was friendlier to the settlers, rumors are that Wanchese, ultimately, did not agree with the direction they took the settlement.

Waves Formerly known as South Rodanthe, the post office renamed the city after the Atlantic Ocean’s whitecaps. No matter the name, each locale along the Outer Banks is draped in historical significance.

Nags Head Whether totally true or not, the legend of how Nags Head got its name is unique. The story goes that land pirates would tie a lantern to an old horse, known as a nag, and slowly walk its four-legged companion up and down the beach’s dunes at night. Sailors at sea would think this was a ship docked at harbor and sail toward the light. When their ship ran aground, pirates would rob the ship.

Ocracoke Island Residents of Ocracoke Island can thank one of the most notorious pirates for the island’s name. Legend is the pirate Blackbeard, also known as Edward Teach, dropped anchor on the island and yelled into the breeze “Oh, Crow Cock!”

Rodanthe Rodanthe is usually considerably easier to say than the town’s original name of North Chicamacomico. Although the origins of the name aren’t fully known, it’s believed

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE

CHARMS of the Coast

Lighthouses Boast Unforgettable Experience

T

he Outer Banks is home to sandy beaches, breathtaking sunsets, friendly residents and tourists, as well as historic lighthouses. These beacons of light have become a part of the islands’ identity and a huge draw for the tourism industry.

CAPE HATTERAS LIGHTHOUSE 46368 Lighthouse Road, Buxton, NC 27920 • 252-995-4474 There is not a better known landmark on the Outer Banks than the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Its black and white spiral pattern welcomes guests frequenting the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Climbs are available the third Friday of every month, beginning in April and going to Columbus Day. The climbs are self paced and boast unmatched views from atop the tallest brick lighthouse in North America.

BODIE ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE 8210 Bodie Island Lighthouse Road, Nags Head, NC 27959 252-475-9501 Another well-known beacon is the Bodie Island Lighthouse. The structure was originally built in 1847 but was rebuilt in 1859 just to have Confederate soldiers blow it up during the Civil War. The lighthouse that stands today was erected in 1872 on the banks of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. For those seeking the full Bodie Island experience, climb to the top for an unbelievable vista. The lighthouse is open from the third Friday in April through Columbus Day.

CURRITUCK BEACH LIGHTHOUSE 1101 Corolla Village Road, Corolla, NC 27927 • 252-453-4939

Nestled in historic Corolla Village, the Currituck Beach Lighthouse stands 162 feet to the top of its roof. While the outside of the red brick lighthouse is a beautiful experience in its own right, the real adventure begins inside. Visitors are welcome to climb the winding staircase at their leisure, which contains 220 steps. The lighthouse opens for the season in mid-March.

OCRACOKE ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE 360 Lighthouse Road, Ocracoke, NC 27960 • 252-928-6711 Located on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore too, the Ocracoke Island Lighthouse is the oldest one in operation in North Carolina. It is also the second oldest in the United States. Standing only 75 feet tall, it is by far the smallest lighthouse on the Outer Banks. While the lighthouse is not open to climbers, it is perfect for a photo opp. The lighthouse is accessible to visitors year-round.

ROANOKE MARSHES LIGHTHOUSE End of the pier on Manteo Waterfront, Manteo, NC 27954 252-475-1750 Unlike other beacons of light on the Outer Banks, the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse is an exquisite screwpile structure. As the fourth incarnation of the lighthouse, this site complements the island’s maritime past. Since it is located at the end of the pier on the Manteo Waterfront, it boasts the perfect opportunity to take in the area’s vibrant natural beauty. The interior is open to visitors and houses exhibits. It is also open during warm weather months, from Tuesday through Saturday. l By Sarah Lancaster WWW.OUTERBANKSCHAMBER.COM

Shelling Out Some Fun Discover These Treasures Washed Ashore

One of the most unique adventures on the Outer Banks is strolling along the coastline, toes in the sand, breeze in the air and rays of sunshine beaming down along the tranquil waters. While leisurely traipsing along the shore, beachgoers can browse the grounds beneath their feet for shells, sea glass and more. The Outer Banks is home to many types of seashells, making it a beachcomber’s perfect paradise. Known as the official North Carolina State Shell, the Scotch Bonnet is a rare find on the islands. The Queen Helmet Conch can be found on the south facing beaches. Whelks are common on the islands and northern East Coast shoreline. Olive shells are delicate and an ideal piece to any collection. Other shell types include the oyster driller, periwinkle, moon snail, sundial and auger, among others. In addition to shells the beaches along the Outer Banks are known for a place to find sea glass. Sea glass begins as normal shards of broken glass that are then persistently tumbled and ground until the sharp edges are smoothed and rounded. In this process, the glass loses its slick surface but gains a frosted appearance over many years.

Stroll the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks for sea glass, seashells and more! Naturally produced sea glass originates as pieces of glass from broken bottles, broken tableware, or even shipwrecks, which are rolled and tumbled in the ocean for years until all of their edges are rounded off, and the slickness of the glass has been worn to a frosted appearance. Sea glass is often used in decorative pieces, jewelry or just saved and admired. Now that tourists know what kinds of shells and sea glass to look for on the Outer Banks, the last question remains where to look. The 4WD beaches in Carova, Coquina Beach, Irene’s Inlet, South Beach, along piers, Frisco and Hatteras beaches and Ocracoke Island, just to name a few, are great places to start a collection. 26

With a variety of shells across the islands, locals and tourists alike enjoy trying to find the most unique ones to take back home. Want to learn even more about beachcombing? Visit the Outer Banks Beachcomber Museum, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum is located at Mattie Midgette’s Store in Old Nags Head. There are plans in place to move the museum, have fulltime hours, and open a heritage center, as well as native plant gardens. “For the last 15 years, the museum’s owners have been focused on preserving and sharing those resources

that create a sense of place, rooted in the specifics of the local land, its people and their stories, artifacts and traditions,” says Dorothy Hope, Outer Banks Beachcomber Museum proprietor. Hope advises future collectors to go to the beach early when fewer visitors are likely to be out. She recommends being persistent and enjoying the ocean’s beauty while awaiting treasures to come ashore. l By Rachel Nall and Sarah Lancaster WWW.OUTERBANKSCHAMBER.COM

TIE THE KNOT I Dos By the Sea

Dotted with sandy shorelines and sunny skies, the Outer Banks offers the perfect backdrop for a dream wedding, no matter the size or budget. From seaside nuptials to floral gardens to shark tanks at the aquarium, there is a venue for every style. “Jennette’s Pier is one of the few oceanfront facilities that is both a ceremony and reception venue,” says Michele Bunce, Jennette’s Pier facility rental coordinator. “Couples can get married on the wide beaches next to the pier or on the wooden pier deck itself. Receptions are held in the 3,500 squarefoot banquet room on the second floor, which has a covered outside deck. Whether people are mingling with cocktails or sitting in the white rocking chairs on the deck, they are enjoying some of the most beautiful panoramic ocean views on the Outer Banks. The banquet room is accented by a fireplace that reaches up to the 22-foot high wood, cathedral ceilings.” Creating one of the most unique venues in the area is the North Carolina Aquarium On Roanoke Island. “[The aquarium] tantalizes the imagination and creates an unforgettable experience,” says Cheryl Gross, events coordinator for the aquarium. “Imagine your wedding ceremony on our 200-foot Soundside Pier and gazebo overlooking the Croatan Sound, featuring gorgeous sunsets. Imagine your guests enjoying cocktails while exploring our galleries. Imagine dinner set in front of our 285,000-gallon Graveyard of the Atlantic exhibit featuring the largest collection of sharks in North Carolina. Imagine dancing in our Delicate Drifters Gallery while surrounded by five sea jelly tanks and three bubble tanks. Experience an unforgettable, magical event at this truly unique Outer Banks venue.” Another perfect location on the Outer Banks, with an unforgettable wedding background, is the

Elizabethan Gardens. The gardens boasts classic sculptures and beautiful seasonal botanical gardens throughout its 10 acres of land. No matter the season, a variety of plants, trees and shrubs create a pictureperfect background for couples to say, “I do.” The Elizabethan Gardens provides a setting for weddings to accommodate 20 guests or fewer but up to as many as 300 attendees. Another Outer Banks venue that offers a great play to tie the knot is Roanoke Island Festival Park. The venue boasts several options from which to choose, including a pavilion stage and lawn, replica Elizabeth II Ship, the Grand Mall and Observation Deck and Event Room. Whether lavish or intimate, by the sea or indoors, couples will find a perfect place along the Outer Banks for their big day. l By Gennie Taylor

TWO PAWS UP

Where Canines and Felines Have it Made Four-legged companions have an oasis of their own on the Outer Banks. Dogs (and cats too) enjoy time spent with their humans, either while vacationing as a tourist or living life to the fullest as a resident. And for those pets still looking for their forever home, they have groups like the Outer Banks SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) working on their behalf. The organization operates the Dare County Animal Shelter, which gives a temporary home to lost or abandoned pets in hopes of placing them with caring families. Best of all, they never turn away pets from Dare County, no matter if the pets are sick, hurt, have behavioral issues, owner surrenders, etc. They truly believe the animals they take in are deserving of a happily ever after. On average, Outer Banks SPCA takes in about 2,000 dogs and cats annually. For a little tender, loving care, owners have a wealth of trustable and dependable pet resorts and pet sitters from which to choose, whether away on play or business. Resorts take pampering man’s best friend and favorite feline to a whole new level. From overnight, daily and hourly care to grooming, pets will love the resort-style life.

Finding forever homes for pets, the SPCA helps give dogs and cats the lives they deserve.. Pets who prefer to stay put in their comfy confines while owners are away have access to some amazing pet sitters. Offering any where from 30-minute to one-hour visits, one to three times a day or more, as well as walking and exercise, pets are well taken care of while mom and dad are away. Most pet sitters will even bring in the mail, alternate lights, water plants and more. Some offer overnight stays if needed.

Before walking man’s best friend on the beach, be sure to know the leash laws.

Beaches of Currituck County require pets to be on leashes at all times. Duck requires that leashes do not exceed 10 feet in length, and pets are allowed to play unleashed on the beach under close supervision of owner. Southern Shores laws require that leashes do not extend past 10 feet in length, and from May 15 to Sept. 15, animals are prohibited on town beaches. Kitty Hawk requires that leashes do not exceed 6 feet in length between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. from the Friday before Memorial Day until the day after Labor Day. At all other times, leashes must remain retractable to 12 feet. Well-trained dogs may be unleashed under close supervision of owner.

The Outer Banks is a community of tight-knit businesses and locals. Each person and establishment here on the beach works to support one another.” Harris began Kitty Hawk Kites in 1974, and since then, the company has continually grown in scope and services. “The Outer Banks is one of the best beach resort locations on the East Coast, which makes it one of the best beach resort retail locations on the East Coast,” says Harris. “In our 44-year history, Kitty Hawk Kites, Inc. has grown to 15 Outer Banks locations and is proud to be part of the fabric of the Outer Banks.” Spreading holiday cheer throughout the year, the Christmas Shop and General Store is filled with the spirit of Jolly Ole St. Nick and the merriment of the season.

IN TIMES PAST

Mystery and History Abound on Roanoke Island

T

he following timeline outlines some of Roanoke Island’s most notable eras and biggest events, from the first settlement in the New World to the mystery of the Lost Colony. Roanoke Island comprises Fort Raleigh City, Manteo and Wanchese. 1584 - More than 100 men established a fort and settlement on the north side of the island. The following year, the land was abandoned due to weather conditions, poor relations with natives and limited resources. 1587 - One hundred seventeen English colonists left for the New World. They reached Roanoke Island in July. On August 18, Eleanor Dare gave birth to the first English-speaking child, Virginia Dare, in the New World. A week later, the newborn’s grandfather, Capt. John White, had to return to England for supplies. 1590 - Due to conflict in his native land, White didn’t get to come back to the New World until now. Upon his return, there wasn’t any sign of his family or the other colonists. The only remnants were letters “CRO” and “CROATOAN” carved into a tree and the side of the fort. To this day, no one knows what happened to these colonists. Today, these colonists are remembered through an outdoor drama coined “The Lost Colony.” 1600s - Roanoke Island was permanently settled. 1870 - Dare County was formed with the county seat and courthouse.

1873 - The government center became known as Manteo with the establishment of the post office. 1899 - Manteo was incorporated as a town. 1936 - Wanchese Fish Company opens in the Wanchese fishing village by W.R. Etheridge. 1937 - “The Lost Colony” is performed for its first audience. It is the nation’s premier and longest-running outdoor symphonic drama. 1960 - The Elizabethan Gardens formally opens in August 18 on the 373rd anniversary of the birth of Virginia Dare. 1984-1987 - Roanoke Island and Manteo become a fixture for America’s 400th anniversary. A replica Elizabeth II, similar to what the colonists arrived on, was constructed along the Manteo waterfront. 1984 - Her Royal Highness the Princess Anne attended the ship dedication. 1999 - Town of Manteo celebrated its 100th birthday. 2000s - A tract of land, named Site X, nearly 60 miles west of Roanoke Island uncovers artifacts that may related to the Lost Colony.
