Abstract:
In the 19th-century the United States Weather Bureau established several weather stations and observation posts throughout North Carolina and along the coast. The earliest coastal station was established in Wilmington in 1871, and has been in continuous operation since. A second station was built at Cape Hatteras in 1874, followed by five others up and down the coast. These stations played an important role in early storm and hurricane tracking and were the first weather warning systems for coastal residents. Harrison recounts the history of the Cape Hatteras Station.

Abstract:
In 1880, when Richard Etheridge became the first African American in command of a life saving station, the Pea Island Life Saving Station on North Carolina's Outer Banks, the four white crewmen quit. Etheridge was free to choose a crew possessing the best qualities of a lifesaver. The crew was all African American, the first such in the history of the service. Led by Etheridge, the men earned a reputation for skill and courage in saving lives during a time of prejudice and racial tension, until the station was decommissioned in 1947. Harrison recounts the station's finest hour, the rescue of the captain, his family and crew, from the schooner E. S. Newman, on the night of October 11, 1896. One hundred years later, on March 5, 1996, Etheridge and his crew were posthumously awarded the Gold Lifesaving Medal, the service's highest peacetime honor.

Harrison recounts the growth of the family business which is now in its fourth generation.

Three coastal communities that offer walks are the Beaufort Ghost Walk, Ocracoke Ghost Walk and Historic Tour, and the Ghost Walk of Old Wilmington.
