Abstract:
The Etheridge family came from the mainland to Roanoke Island in 1799 to establish a farmstead. The farm remained in the family's possession until descendants sold it in 1988 to Outer Banks Conservationists, a private, nonprofit organization incorporated to protect and preserve historic sites. A rustic shell of a single-gable, five-room house, ringed with empty outbuildings, is the only reminder of almost 200 years of the family's presence. Restoration began in 1999. The conservation group will operate the Etheridge farm and land as a living history interpretation site of a 19th-century, eastern North Carolina coastal farm.
