Mr. Stanley, I Suppose

Record #:
One of the most enterprising individual's in the state's history was Ocracoke native Stanley Wahab. Leaving the island to get a higher education and to make his fortune, Wahab returned in the 1930s to bring Ocracoke out of its isolation. Among the numerous things he did were building Wahab Village, the light plant, and ice house; building modern hotels, motels, and cottages; financing the Ocracoke- Hatteras ferry and bus line; and establishing a flying service between Manteo and Ocracoke.
