"Ocracoke...on the north side of Ocracoke Inlet is a fishing village settled in the 17th century. Islanders in precarious houses, coast guardsmen, and sportsmen live peaceably here although there is no civil officer of the law. At the boat landing is a hotel, a frame structure built around three sides of a sandy courtyard. Infrequent hurricanes, hardly one in a decade, strike with great force. The village was inundated in the storm of 1933."
|The Pamlico Inn, ca. 1938|
The Pamlico Inn, referred to above, was destroyed beyond repair in the 1944 hurricane.
