This scenic area has both heavily wooded grounds and miles flat white beach. Because of these provisions, the area was once home to the Croatan Indians. History of the Lost Colony shows that the English travelers who came to the Outer Banks were peaceful with the Native Americans and some historians believe that the colonists came to Frisco to stay with the Indians in their village of Croatan. Searches and digs from the area produced a dug out canoe. The canoe was found on the Frisco Native American Museum and History Center's property. The center offers historical evidence and stories of the Native American lifestyle in Frisco. They preserve the artifacts and art found in the area and offer tourists and locals alike a rich gallery of Croatan Art as well as information on Native American culture throughout the nation. They offer culture of the first inhabitants of Hatteras Island.

The wooded area of Frisco is actually the edge of Buxton Woods, or Trent woods. As with other towns, it was renamed from Trent Woods to Frisco when it was given a post office in the late eighteen hundreds. Some tell a humorous story behind the name; the natives suggested the town to be called San Fransisco after the large California town, yet in the end it was called Frisco. Today, the beach of Frisco is home to fishermen, windsurfers and kite boarders as well as many different species of wildlife. Tourists and locals enjoy the 9-hole golf course, miniature gold course and fishing pier.
