  • Fun Facts: The names of locales such as Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and Nags Head are all derived from local pirate folklore. The Atlantic Ocean along the Outer Banks hides nearly 3,000 shipwrecks between Kitty Hawk and Ocracoke. The first radio communications method was produced by Reginald Fessenden on Roanoke Island in 1902. Just south of Kitty Hawk in 1903 the Wright Brothers made the first successful flight of motor-driven air machines (airplanes). Cape Hatteras National Seashore was one of the first areas to be established by the government as protected shoreline. The Seashore encompasses more than 28,000 acres along the Outer Banks. The Nags Head Woods Preserve is one of the finest remaining examples of mid-Atlantic maritime forest. This habitat is 640 acres of hardwood forest, wetlands, and dunes. Blackbeard the pirate, Edward Teach, was slain by Lt. Robert Maynard of the Royal Navy in 1718 near Ocracoke Island. Blackbeard's powerful control of these waters had made him a very wealthy man. His treasure is rumored to be buried somewhere on Ocracoke Island although it has never by recovered. Jockey's Ridge State Park is home to the highest sand dune on the East Coast (more than 90 feet in height). Roanoke Island is the location of 'The Lost Colony.' In 1587 English settlers, recruited by Sir Walter Raleigh, landed at this location of the Outer Banks and disappeared three years later without a trace. A beautiful, living memorial to the Lost Colonists is The Elizabethan Gardens. This garden tract is adjacent to the Fort Raleigh National Park and was established in 1950. Wild Ponies still roam along the coast of North Carolina. The herds are thought to be the descendents of Spanish mustangs first introduced to the area in the early 1500s.
