visitor center

Southland Restaurant posted this message to Currituck commissioners on its message board sign last week: “BOC: Keep Our Welcome Center.” Southland was one of several businesses in Moyock that opposed Currituck County’s proposed sale of its visitor center at the North Carolina-Virginia state line. Commissioners unanimously voted against selling the center on Monday.

CURRITUCK — County commissioners last week voted to reject an offer by Battlefield Moyock to buy the Currituck Visitors Center located on the state line despite the company boosting its bid by $300,000.

The unanimous vote to reject the $2.5 million offer for the property came a week after commissioners were scheduled to consider a resolution to sell the property to the group for $2.2 million at its Nov. 7 meeting. That vote was delayed because Commissioner Bob White was absent.
