Mattie Midgette's Store: 4008 South Virginia Dare Trail, Nags Head NC

252-564-5317 ~ info@osob.net

Miidgette's Store is the oldest commercial structure in Nags Head. In 2004 it was listed in the 
National Register of Historic Places for its role in the development of the Nags Head resort from 
1914 through 1960. It is eligible for use as an Owner Occupied Art Gallery or an Artisan's Workshop, 
as described in the Town Codes.

Contrary to what many people believe, the listing of a property in the National Register 
places no obligations or restrictions on a private owner using private resources to maintain 
or alter their property. Over the years, various federal incentives have been introduced to 
assist private preservation initiatives. A private owner of a National Register property 
becomes obligated to follow federal preservation standards only if the owner seeks and 
receives a special benefit that derives from National Register designation, such as a 
grant or a tax credit. NRHP FAQS

The Town of Nags Head does not have any local preservation laws, such as a Historic 
Landmark Commission, that poses restrictions on historic property owners. 

All artifacts and furnishings will be removed from the building upon final sale.
