William J. Morgan, a merchant who operated a store in the wharf area, came to Oriental from Elizabeth City. His wife, Annie B. Morgan, was president of the Oriental Woman’s Club in the 1920s. Their home was later purchased by J.B. and Mildred Daw who resided here with their family for over fifty years. The current owners elevated the house after flooding from Hurricane Isabelle.
