From The Outer Banks Voice:
The original Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg burned down in a massive blaze last October. There’s not much left of it now, just a building on the north end that was the least damaged. Work is now underway to save that one section of an iconic piece of Currituck history as the process of working toward an eventual re-opening begins.
“It’s been pretty challenging because that was pretty bad fire. It’s next spring at best,” Tommy Wright, owner of the Cotton Gin said, referring to a re-opening.
