Introduction to Avon, NC

History
Avon is located south just beyond Salvo, before arriving on Hatteras Island. The town of Avon was originally named "Kinnakeet", an Algonquin word meaning "that which is mixed." The "mixing" stems from the merging of native tribes and the English settlers. The name became official with the opening of the Kinnakeet Post Office in 1873. 10 years later in 1883, the town was renamed, Avon. Although there are no official records of why the post office selected Avon as the new name, it is speculated that it was named after the river in England.

Avon like most of the towns on the Outer Banks relied on the surrounding waters of the Atlantic and Sound for its livelihood. Boat building was the main way of life for Avon residents. The width of Hatteras Island lent itself to forests of cedar and live oak trees, which were key in boat building from the colonial days to decades after the Civil War. Avon was once the island's most prosperous local village right up until Hatteras Inlet was opened by a hurricane in 1846.

Weather in Avon
Avon, North Carolina has hot and humid summers, cool winters, and year-round precipitation. During the summer months, a cool afternoon breeze off the ocean is present most days in Avon. At times, extreme heat, over 100 degrees F, and humidity can occur. Avon may be affected by hurricanes, especially during hurricane season from June 1 through November 30.
