Lake Mattamuskeet


Abstract:
Perhaps no geographic division of the world ever underwent so many changes, during a quarter of a century as Lake Mattamuskeet in Dare County. Originally, it was a natural game refuge with an abundant supply of fish and fowl. After two hundred years it its natural state, hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent in a venture to drain the lake and use it for agricultural purposes. After several years of inactivity, pumping has ceased and the Federal Government has turned Mattamuskeet Lake back into a thriving game refuge.
