Currituck County to build boat museum

Currituck County plans to begin construction later this year on a boat museum that will house historic boats and tell the stories of locals who worked and played on waterways in the area. Construction is scheduled to begin after Labor Day and should be completed by the fall of 2020.

The boat museum will be located in Historic Corolla Park, near the Currituck Lighthouse, Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education, and Whalehead.
