On the Waterfront

Record #:
Begun in 1967 and once housed in a small brick building, the Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City has room to grow in its newly opened 50,000-square-foot facility. The four-story building draws upon the historic Outer Banks United States Life Saving Service buildings for its design. The museum portrays the customs and values of the people who settled and sustained the Albemarle region. Two historic buildings that were moved to the museum and restored on-site are the Jackson House (1755) and an 1840s smokehouse.
