The Nags Head Casino was first a barracks in the early 1930s for the stonemasons who constructed the Wright Brothers National Memorial. The two-story building contained 13 bowling alleys, pool tables, games, and a snack bar downstairs. Upstairs was the dance floor and bar. The top-floor shutters were propped open with a stick so the summer breezes drifted in and the music wafted out. Owner “Ras” Wescott waxed and buffed the wooden dance floor every day and there was a policy against shoes. Patrons, including servicemen in uniform, dropped their shoes on the way upstairs and spent the rest of the evening gliding across the floor. The Casino was known for its “barefoot dancers.” At the Fats Domino show Fats changed the lyrics to “I Found My Thrill on Jockey’s Ridge.”

Some may remember the boxing matches on Wednesday nights, fights in the parking lot, night walks on Jockey’s Ridge and the beach after closing time. Also rowdy patrons jumping out windows to avoid the bouncers. Wescott turned away long-haired surfers because he did not like men with ponytails.  Miss Delnoy Burrus would cut off patrons ponytails in the as they waited in the ticket line.

Long ago it was where everyone wanted to be.
