Currituck County, located in the northeastern region of North Carolina, was established in 1668 as one of the first counties in the state. Its name is believed to have originated from an Algonquin Native American term meaning "wild geese" or "land of wild geese." Currituck County covers an area of approximately 526 square miles, consisting of both land and water.
The area has a rich history, with Native American tribes such as the Carolina Algonquian and the Wepemeoc inhabiting the region before European settlers arrived. The first European exploration in the area dates back to 1584, when English explorers, such as Philip Amadas and Arthur Barlowe, discovered the Outer Banks during their search for a suitable place to establish a colony.
Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, Currituck County became an essential hub for trade, agriculture, and fishing. The location was ideally suited for maritime trade, allowing access to both the inland rivers and the Atlantic Ocean. The county's soil, terrain, and moderate climate provided an ideal location for growing crops such as tobacco, corn, and cotton.
During the Revolutionary War, Currituck County's strategic location meant it was at the center of various skirmishes and military actions. The Battle of Tulls Creek, which took place on August 5, 1778, was one of the more notable encounters in the region. The county was also instrumental during the War of 1812 and the Civil War, with Currituck Sound serving as an important navigation route and its residents providing supplies and support for the military forces.
Today, Currituck County is well-known for its natural beauty and several popular tourist attractions. One fun fact about the region is that it is home to the wild Spanish Mustangs, descendants of horses brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. These wild horses can still be found roaming freely on the beaches of Corolla and the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge, attracting thousands of visitors each year.
