Lived in Kitty Hawk 83-84, on the beach road, next to a mom and pop laundromat. Is it still there along with the house to the right of it and the one behind it?

I'm coming down in April after being gone 26 years and want to see if where I used to live is still there. Also lived in a house on Arch St. in KDH on the S.E. corner of Arch and 158. Is it still there?

Thanks for any feedback. 3/28/11

Seems things have changed a bit ...

Dear Darren,

So I?ve sat on this one for a few days trying to get you an answer. I reached out to several people I know on the Outer Banks, and Judith Bailey, who writes the Hidden Gems series did a little research. Here is what she found:






I looked on the satellite image on the place described and that is the Big Eye Seafood place now, it was originally a farm market when it was first built. But that failed. So I know that they built it from scratch so they must have torn down the house this person lived in to build the plant place.

I would need more info on the KH one. Most of the laundromats have gone bye-bye because all the rental houses now have built in facilities. That was sort of a mom and pop rental house concept, no laundry.






Apparently, Darren, you are about to find a different Kitty Hawk than the one you left back in 1984. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Kind regards,
Dan

Thank you!

Thanks Dan and everyone who did research on my question. I guess after 26 years you can't expect things to remain the same. Can't wait to see how OBX has changed. Love this web page! Lots of good info! Darren
