Currituck Co., N.C. Houses


Sam Parker Home

Located on Bell's Island Road in Curve.  It is said that Peter Poyner built it for his son, Robert, shortly after 1770.  English siding remains exposed on porch, as does the tongue and grooved inside wall of the porch room.  Original huge rived sills are still intact and it is believed that the same chimney may be the original, although there is no discernable date on it.  Shell mortar still holds together the bricks of the chimney and also the underpinning of the house.
