Abstract:
Today, one of the Core Sound roads off Rt. 70 in Atlantic, North Carolina, boasts the name “Houseboat Inn.” While no houseboat remains, the story lingers. In the 1930s, the owner of a houseboat traveling south from Baltimore stopped in Atlantic. Deciding he liked the property, the owner moved the houseboat onto land and added secondary construction features including additional rooms, a porch, and a pier. The author’s family purchased the entire property in 1944 and ran the houseboat as an inn through the 1960s. Various Marine Corps officers would rent the space throughout the war and continued to visit years later. In 1980, the structure was razed from arson activity, ending its history.
