Although the use of historic sites in the interpretation of history is common practice, the incorporation of African and African American history into site interpretation is relatively new. North Carolina is now beginning to add this component to its historic sites.
Recent statistics from North Carolina’s State Historic Sites indicate that the history business is booming. In 1980, there was a ten-percent increase in the number of visitors to the twenty sites operated by the Historic Sites Section of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources. This recent trend may be due to the inexpensive costs of visiting state historic sites, better publicity, and improvements in facilities and interpretations of the sites themselves.
