Frisco, North Carolina


Frisco, North Carolina

Frisco is a small unincorporated community on the barrier island of Hatteras Island, between the villages of Buxton and Hatteras. It is located in Dare County, North Carolina, USA, and was previously named Trent, or Trent Woods, but received a new name with the coming of the post office (zip code 27936) in 1898. Most of the land is taken by houses available for rental during the summer months, and as such the community's population varies seasonally. North Carolina Highway 12 serves as the primary road in Frisco and connects the community to others on the island.

Billy Mitchell Airport is located in Frisco and was named after former United States Army General Billy Mitchell. Across the street from the small, local airfield is the Frisco Native American Museum [ [http://www.nativeamericanmuseum.org/ Frisco Native American Museum] ] .

Residents of Frisco are served by the Cape Hatteras Elementary and Secondary Schools located on NC 12 in Frisco. [ [http://www.dare.k12.nc.us/moxie/schools/CHS/index.shtml District Website] ]
