Hammock House (Beaufort, North Carolina)
The house is believed to be constructed in the early eighteenth century (circa 1700) and is a prominent example of West Indies architecture. There is a tradition that the pirate, Blackbeard (Edward Teach), stayed in the house in the eighteenth century while it was serving as an inn. In the nineteenth century, "[t]he house was used by the Union Army during the Civil War including a company of "Buffaloes" or Southerners who joined the Union forces." On December 15, 2009 the house was featured on Episode 1.11 of Ghost Lab for its connection to Blackbeard.
