Abstract:
Carved from Carrara marble in Rome in 1859 by Louisa Lander of Salem, Massachusetts, the idealized statue of Virginia Dare has traveled far to its current resting spot on Roanoke Island. The statue was salvaged from a shipwreck while en route to Boston, barely survived a museum fire after its restoration, and was defiled during its time displayed at the Supreme Court. Thankfully, in 1955 the Garden Clubs of North Carolina built the Elizabethan Garden on Roanoke Island, displaying the statue proudly in an honored position.

Abstract:
The Fontana Resort, modern by most standards, is the third resort on the site and its history extends back before the turn of the century. Capital of the lumber empire in the 1890s, a railway transformed it into a boom town, later boasting a profitable copper mine, and a large dam. The second Fontana village was built to house construction workers for the TVA dam, and was eventually abandoned. It has now been rebuilt, modernized, and expanded to become one of the state's largest vacation facilities.
