Located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Town of Kitty Hawk offers year-round residents and visitors alike a unique and relaxing environment. The Town consists of a thriving Village that has been around for generations, a newer beach community of residential cottages, and a maritime forest called Kitty Hawk Woods. The Woods feature a wide variety of plant and animal life.
The beach and village consist of low to medium density, single-family residential developments served by small businesses. Both the beach and the village share a feeling that development remains on a human scale and in harmony with nature. It is a pattern and character of development that the Town’s people, both year-round and seasonal, are quite comfortable with and want to retain.
The origin of the name Kitty Hawk is still a matter of local debate. Most people agree that it is a Native American name for this area. The word originally appeared on English settlers’ maps as “Chickehawk” or “Chickahawk” in the early 1700’s. By the late 1700’s, local residents spelled the name as we do today, with old land deeds referring to settlements as “Kittyhuk,” “Kittyhark,” KittyHawk,” and “Kitty Hawk.”
