Riggs Ward is currently working with Currituck County Department of Travel and Tourism to build a new museum in Corolla, North Carolina. The exhibits will tell the story of Currituck’s legendary boat builders. Surrounded by sound and ocean waters and interlaced with rivers and creeks, Currituck County is defined by water. Whether for work, recreation or transportation, boats are an integral part of life in Currituck County, certainly today, but even more so in previous generations. The museum will display 12 historic boats and tell the story of the builders and the history of Currituck through modern, interactive displays. The building, with an architectural design that complements Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education, will be set in Historic Corolla Park on a site between Currituck Beach Lighthouse and the Whalehead Boat House. “These boats are an integral part of our history,” says Kight, who is chairman of the Historic Boat Committee. “If we don’t preserve our history, Currituck County will be just like any other place.”
