Abstract:
The first scout movement in Morehead City was created in 1913. The leaders of this early troop were actively involved in the community. As such, they joined the First World War effort which led to a series of short term scoutmasters. During the 1920s and 1930s, the troop reformed to become Troop 39, which met at the local school through the Second World War. Following the war years, the troop again disbanded to be eventually reformed as 130. Today, this troop is sponsored by the Parkview Baptist Church.
