Kill Devil Hills definitely has one of the most interesting names in the Outer Banks, maybe even in the country! References to the area date back to the 1700's and it was referred to a "Kill Devil Hill" and "Kill Devil Hills". Kill Devil Hill or Big Kill Devil Hill refers to the grassed over area on which the Wright Brothers Memorial has been erected. It was here that the Wright brothers took their actual flight on December 17, 1903.
Kill Devil Hills residential areas are designated as Oceanside (east of Hwy 158 bypass) and West side (west of Hwy 158 bypass). The Oceanside area further distinguishes homes as "between the highways", meaning between the bypass and the beach road (Highway 12) and Oceanfront (or semi-oceanfront) for homes located on the beach road (also known as Virginia Dare Trail).
Another area of note in Kill Devil Hills is Colington Island. Colington Island was the first gifted land by the Lords Proprietors and the first land in the Province of Carolina - September 8, 1663. While it is usually referred to as one island, it is actually two islands Big Colington Island and Little Colington Island. There are lots of wonderful homes and subdivisions in Colington including the gated community of Colington Harbor, which offers a wonderful marina, community pool and center.
Origin of the name - as one would guess with such a unique name, there are an abundance of theories on where the name came from. Here are a few theories/legends that are particularly interesting.
Kill Devil Hills offers public beach accesses and sound accesses.
