Waterfront Fixer Upper in NC Living Ghost Town $20K
Save this old building in the living ghost town of Middletown, North Carolina. The former Schmitt and Fletcher Boatwrights is located in what was once Hyde County’s largest port. It was the also the county’s first incorporated town (1787). Today, few remnants of this thriving town still stand. The county’s Civil War heritage was recently honored with a monument in the small park along the banks of Middle Creek. The ghost village is one of 10 historic sites on the Hyde County Talking Houses and Historic Places driving tour. It is only one hour from Nags Head’s ocean beaches, but of course, flooding is an issue.
Own a piece of the Historic Middletown Ghost Town! Dock your boat out back and travel Middle Creek out to the Pamlico Sound. Building was a boat builders shop most recently. Hyde County is steeped in history and Middletown is no exception. Once a thriving small town and Hyde’s first incorporated town (1787), it now sits as a reminder of a simpler time and love of life on the water in a charming, yet haunting, little ghost town.
