From the January 30, 1984, issue of the Ocracoke Island News:
"Ocracoke has seen a lot of progress in the last decade. One person who has helped bring progress and modernization to the island was Stanley Wahab (1888-1967)
"In the late 1930s Stanley built the Wahab Village Hotel in hopes of bringing the tourist trade to Ocracoke.
"This hotel still stands today as Blackbeard's Lodge. Stanley used one wing of the Wahab Village as a roller skating rink. Another wing was converted into a movie theater."
