Hatteras Island Space Ship





Recognize this unique building?
Originally brought down by Dr. Lee & Mary Jane Russo, this unique “space ship” style house was used as the family’s private vacation home. Designed by Finnish architect, Matti Suuronen in 1968, the Futuro House is complete with living, sleeping and dining areas.  

After years of use by the Russo family, they decided to donate the space ship home to the local volunteer fire department and moved to Frisco. It was later purchased by the owners of the Scotch Bonnet and used as a year round rental, office space for the island publication The Monitor, campground office and lastly, an ice cream and hot dog stand.

The future home now sits along Highway 12 in Frisco and has become a famed island attraction. Decked out in an alien space theme, the space ship is a hot spot for photos and comes complete with its own live Martian!

Chicamacomico Life Saving Station- A Mini History

Built in 1874, Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station was among the first seven Life-Saving stations in North Carolina. Designed in the “timber frame” style, the buildings were basic but strong enough to withstand the high winds and unpredictable weather conditions of the island, house equipment and be comfortable enough for the surfmen to live there. Over the years, extensive maintenance and building additions were made to the station.
The crew members of Chicamacomico were credited for a number of rescues throughout the station’s history. It’s most famous rescue was that of the British tanker, the Mirlo. On August 16th 1918, the Mirlo was sunk by German submarine U-117. The surfmen of Chicamacomico were able to rescue 42 of the 51 British sailors aboard the Mirlo and is considered one of the greatest rescues of WWI and of the early Coast Guard. 
With the growing technologies in weather and rescue equipment and abilities, the need for multiple stations was becoming unnecessary.
In 1954 Chicamacomico was decommissioned and the site was taken over by the NPS. Later in 1968 the station’s buildings were bought by the Civic Association and turned over to the Chicamacomico Historical Association Inc., who owns the site today. The association continues its efforts in restoring each building and all available rescue equipment.
Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site & Museum is one of Hatteras Realty’s top spots to see while visiting Hatteras Island. The station welcomes all visitors for tours, apparatus demonstrations and other special events throughout the year. 
Check out www.chicamacomico.net for a full history of the station, calendar of events and other details about this historical site.

Herbert C. Bonner Bridge - 1963 Construction

Back in 1963 the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge completed construction linking Hatteras Island to the mainland. With the bridge in place, the vacation industry blossomed on Hatteras Island. Visitors wanting to enjoy the beaches and fishing now had an easy way to access the island.
Recently a contract was awarded to PCL Constructors Inc. and HDR Engineering Inc. of the Carolinas to build a new bridge spanning the three and a half miles over Oregon Inlet. Bridge construction is projected to start sometime this month.
A ground breaking ceremony will be held on Tuesday at 10 am. The ceremony will take place in the parking lot on the south end (Hatteras Island side) of the bridge. Due to limited parking, guests are asked to park at Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, where shuttles will be available to take to the site.
