A jail built in 1776! ready to go see today in Currituck county. Well, the county was given permission to build a jail in 1776 and it is referred to in documents by 1790. I have to look more. So, what happened at this jail? Any ghosts?
Here is a site which mentions a book containing NC laws made concerning slaves. Currituck is mentioned once.
