Kib's Store and the Whale Creek Club

Record #:
Community stores were a tradition in 20th century Carteret County. Carrying everything from food stuffs to household items, every store kept personalized accounts for each family. The author recalls each of the nine stores selling specialty items—one is remembered as carrying fresh farm produce, for example, while another sold handmade Moon Pies. Kib’s Store, in particular, was memorable due to it’s shotgun architectural style and distinctive lean.
