Is There Buried Treasure Under the Whalehead Club?

August 13, 2009
Everybody in the Outer Banks knows the Whalehead Club is one of the most popular, and most beautiful attractions in the area. Whether you’re down for the summer or enjoying a winter weekend on the shore, there’s always something fun to do and see on the grounds of this historic home, once a vacation destination for the well-to-do. It is truly one of our great treasures, and depending on one’s view of the world, it contains more.

The Daily Advance has reported that excavations on the property have revealed the Whalehead’s original foundation. This is an exciting time in Outer Banks history, as it gives us the opportunity to learn more about Currituck’s history and the people who lived and played here in the early part of the twentieth century. Here’s hoping we’ll find more buried gems.
