#76099: Hatteras Village Welcome Center

The enormous second-story railed belvedere atop the shingled hip roof of the first story of this odd-looking building along the Outer Banks Scenic Byway was the observation tower and deck for the U.S. Weather Service in 1902. Now the Hatteras Welcome Center, it has been restored to its original appearance with bright yellow clapboards on the first floor and red painted shingles visible between the dark-green shutters of the second story’s many windows.
