The Albemarle region has been the place of many significant historical events for America from the Lost Colony to the Wright brothers' first flight. Despite its richness in historical events, the area is sparsely populated and economically depressed. Beginning with the Great Depression and continuing through the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, much effort has been put into historic attractions and museums as a means of improving the struggling area by enlightening and attracting tourists.
