Whalehead's Pet Friendly Heritage

WHALEHEAD CLUB
CURRITUCK HERITAGE PARK
Currituck Heritage Park is 39 acers of historic property in Corolla, NC. It includes the restored Whalehead Club, an opulent 1920's residence and the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education. From the beginning Currituck Heritage Park has been pet friendly.

The original owners of the Whalehead Club, Mr. & Mrs. E.C. Knight, Jr., were loving animal owners. Their pet dog a terrier, traveled with them to the Whalehead Club which then was known as Corolla Island. In fact, Mrs. Knight left a sizable bequest in her will to the Humane Society.

Today Currituck Heritage Park remains a beautiful place for people to enjoy their leashed pets from sunrise to sunset. Your cooperation in cleaning up after your pet is always appreciated.

Walking the 0.3-mile Thomas Hariot loop trail through the island's maritime forest to the sandy shores of Albemarle Sound. Enjoy interpretive signs along the way describing the forest habitat, the Algonquian methods for gathering food and resources the English found valuable on Roanoke Island. 
The best way to learn about Fort Raleigh National Historic Site is with a park ranger! Ranger-led programs are offered spring through October, with expanded offerings from Memorial Day through Labor Day. All programs are suitable for all ages and are free of charge. 
Explore the maritime forest along this 1.25-mile Freedom trail that ends with views of the Croatan Sound on the western edge of the park. The trail ends near the location where the Freedmen's Colony and Civil War forts once stood. Return by the trail or use the bike path along Hwy. 64 for a loop back to the visitor center of 2.5-miles.
