The Baum family has a long history of living on the Outer Banks; it is likely that it is one of the oldest families that settled there. The family can trace roots back to the early 1700s and owned extensive property in Currituck and the surrounding counties. Some of the better known family members include Josepheus Baum and Washington Franklin Baum. Josepheus had a windmill located between Poyner's and Paul Gamiels Hills. Washington Franklin Baum, a native of Wanchese, was a Dare County Recorders court judge for twenty-six years. The bridge that connects Manteo to south Nags Head was named for him and was dedicated in 1962.
