The Homeless Men of Cudworth Cemetery


Author(s):
Abstract:
Cudworth Cemetery near Wanchese on Roanoke Island marks the final resting place of nineteen homeless men who, during the Great Depression, were among hundreds employed on the Outer Banks's beach erosion control work from 1936 to 1941. Before World War II brought an end to the project, almost 200 miles of barrier dunes had been constructed. Senter recounts their story.
