A unique new history center opened this summer in Elizabeth City devoted solely to telling the history of the Albemarle region. This region, called \"The Cradle of North Carolina\" (first settled in 1583) is the 10-county area lying east of the Chowan River and bordering the Albemarle Sound. The idea for the museum was first conceived by the Pasquotank Historical Society in the late 1950s. The Museum of the Albemarle opened in May, 1967 and is located on U.S. 17 approximately two miles south of Elizabeth City.
In April 1962, Robert Fowler of Monroe launched a new magazine, CIVIL WAR TIMES ILLUSTRATED, which was a new version of his 1957 publication CIVIL WAR TIMES. Against all odds the magazine succeeded. Its circulation is between 17,000 and 19,000, and it is distributed in every state and most foreign countries. In 1966, Fowler launched another successful magazine, AMERICAN HISTORY ILLUSTRATED.
