Welcome to Avon

Historically named Kinnakeet, the town was renamed Avon by the U.S. Postal Service when a post office was established there in 1883.[1] The U.S. Life-Saving Service constructed the Little Kinnakeet Life Saving Station in 1874, remaining active, under the Coast Guard from 1915, until decommissioned in 1954. The building is now part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.[2]
