Industrialist Edward Collings Knight Jr., and his wife, Marie Louise Lebel Knight got married on October 23, 1922. In celebration of their love for each other, Edward purchased the 4 mile stretch of land originally known as Corolla Island. They started building Whalehead, which took 3 years to build, and finally completed it in 1925. With both having a shared passion for hunting waterfowl, they built this winter getaway for hunting and entertaining. Come and celebrate their 100th anniversary with us at Whalehead!


Currituck Maritime Museum will also be open on Saturday, October 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
