For over 60 years, the community in Ocracoke was a respite for the Westervelt family. Beginning in 1960, Dr. Frederic Westervelt would travel with his family from Virginia for a few days or weeks away from the rigors of his duties as part of the faculty at UVA medical school. The kindness of the people, the quiet pace of life, and the beauty of the ocean continued to draw the Westervelt family to the small island year after year. At Fred’s retirement in 2000, they moved full time down to Ocracoke.
