History of Corolla

Long before it was a popular vacation destination, Corolla was a prime hunting and fishing area for American Indian tribes. This northern barrier island was called Currituck, meaning land of the wild goose. Small communities started to develop around the mid-1800s where locals lived humble lives, surviving off the land. The landscape of Corolla began to change in 1922 when Edward Collings Knight Jr., a wealthy outdoorsmen, began building his private residence, the Whalehead Club. The estate brought jobs to the area and news spread of Corolla’s abundance of waterfowl. Major highway development to the island began in 1984, beginning in an influx of homes. A majority of the homes in the area are still vacation rental and second homes.
