Antebellum Plans for Reopening Roanoke Inlet

Record #:
Roanoke Inlet closed between 1792 and 1798, thus depriving the northeastern North Carolina port towns of an outlet to the Atlantic. In 1820, Hamilton Fulton, civil engineer to the State of North Carolina, devised a plan for reopening the inlet. The project was never undertaken; however, reports of the area provided a detailed account of the dramatic geographic changes that took place in after the Roanoke Inlet closed.
