Abstract:
In 2000, the Carteret County Historical Society purchased a new property in Morehead City. Built during the 1950s, the structure had been a Colonial Store, grocery chain, and furniture store prior to the Society’s acquisition. The property history, however, extends back to the early 1900s. First used as a residential plot, the associated house belonged to G. L. Arthur and his family. Arthur, a local fish dealer, ran a fish house on Bogue Sound. Two of his children became teachers at the local school.
