Manteo Rebuilds


Author(s):
Abstract:
On September 11, 1939, a fire broke out in one of the waterfront docks behind Manteo's business district, destroying sixteen businesses and one large dwelling. The loss was estimated at $200,000, and because the buildings were wooden frame, the insurance covered only ten percent. Manteo is rebuilding, and in place of the old wooden structures, modern, brick buildings are rising.
