The Kill Devil Hills Micropolitan Statistical Area is part of the larger Virginia Beach-Norfolk, VA-NC Combined Statistical Area.The town is home to the site of the Wright brothers' first controlled, powered airplane flights on December 17, 1903, chosen for its good winds.

At the time of the flight, the town of Kill Devil Hills did not exist, and it did not receive its municipal charter until 1953.
