Currituck Co., N.C. Houses

 

Apollos Dey Home

Located just off N.C. Highway 34, at the forks of Tulls Creek Road, east, near Currituck Sound.  Present owner, Mrs. Clyde Mathias.  The huge rived sills are intact as is the original paneling inside and the wide flooring and the mantle.  It is in very [good?] condition.  Note branches of huge magnolia tree at right.  It stands quite near the front door, and there is another one which stands some distance away from the house which is also very large.  Both are believed to be quite old trees.  In the field nearby is and old cemetery, as yet unrecorded in the Currituck Historical Society's files.  However, in the edge of the wooded driveway to the house there is another old cemetery in which, besides the Halsteads and Baxters, the Yankee school teacher, Ezekiel Gilman, is buried.
