Currituck Co., N.C. Houses


Woodhouse Home

Located on U.S. Highway 158 at Grandy.  It is now known as the Major Woodhouse home but it is said to have been built by his father.  It is put together with pegs and the chimney on the right end is held together with shell mortar.  The chimney on the left end is much newer in construction although brick design matches the older chimney.  On the newer chimney is the inscription "T.R. 1869".  Mr. Major Woodhouse was a private in the Civil War.
