Currituck County is a county located in the U.S. state of North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, the population was 23,547. Its county seat is Currituck. The county is part of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area based around Norfolk, Virginia.

Currituck was formed in 1668 as a precinct of Albemarle County. The name is "traditionally said to be an Indian word for wild geese; Coratank." It is in the northeastern section of the State and is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Currituck Sound, Camden County, Dare County and the state of Virginia. Currituck Court House, mentioned as early as 1755, was the name of the county seat. Today the words "Court House" have been dropped and only Currituck is used as the town name.
