Inscription.
Twiddy & Company began preservation in Corolla Village in 1986. The first effort was the Kill Devil Hills Lifesaving Station built in 1878. Relocation from the original oceanfront site was a requirement of the sale, so the station was moved to Corolla.

Further preservation occurred in 1998 as other properties became available. The Lewark/Gray home and the Parker home were first. These old homes now host merchants and nonprofits to include Lovie’s Kitchen Table and the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.

The century old schoolhouse was restored in 1999. In August 2012, the school bell rings again as local children attend a new public charter school.

Explore the marshes and sounds with Coastal Explorations and enjoy The Village Garden planted with heirloom perennials and shrubs. Thanks for exploring this old village and sharing the history
