Take a step back in time...

In the heart of Corolla sits an old-fashioned village, historic Corolla Village, right next door to the historic Currituck Beach Lighthouse, Whalehead Club, unique shops and Historic Corolla Chapel. From ocean to sound, cottages in Corolla Village are on unpaved, tree-lined roads. You'll love the quaintness and character of historic Corolla Village.

Strolling through historic Corolla village feels like taking a step back into a simpler, more relaxed time. The past and present intermingle under the beautiful live oaks. Corolla Village was believed to have been home to more than 200 people in 1890. Many of the residents were families of men working at the Currituck Beach Lifesaving Station, which was established in 1874.
