Dare County. Located just 90 miles south of Norfolk airport and about 200 miles

Northern Beaches, it is home to nearly 6,920 year round residents. One of the
most popular questions visitors ask is how the name Kill Devil Hills came about.
The origin of the name is a source of legends. One legend suggests that during
the colonial period, the only surviving cargo washed ashore from a shipwreck
was a brand of rum named Kill Devil rum. Another version of local lore alludes
to the pirates, buccaneers and swashbucklers who inhabited the area sat on the
dunes drinking a liquor “strong enough to kill the devil”
