Joshua Harrison Home

Located on U.S. Highway 158 south of Jarvisburg.  Joshua Harrison is said to have made and sold Scuppernong grape wine.  He was charged with kidnapping the Beasley boy and committed suicide in the old Gladstone Hotel in Norfolk, Virginia when officers came to bring him back to Currituck for trial.
