Abstract:
A renowned Eastern North Carolina artist extended his passion for coastal living and people beyond the canvas. Frank Stick can be credited for starting Southern Shores and an architectural style that is part of the town’s identity. Stick's Flat Top cottages, with features such as concrete block walls and solid shutters, could withstand certain weather conditions and extended unoccupancy. His efforts to maintain the lives within those walls extended to overseeing financing and assisting with keeping cottages during owners’ challenging financial times. Today, the community extends its appreciation through preservation efforts such as historic landmark designation and the Outer Banks Community Foundation.
