Abstract:
Indian burial mounds are to be found in large numbers in the states along the Atlantic seaboard, and the number of skeletons found therein point to the conclusion that while the methods followed by various tribes may have varied, there was a universal Indian custom of reinterment. Indian burial mounds have been found over North Carolina, a number of which have been explored in Duplin, Sampson, Robeson, and Montgomery Counties.

Abstract:
On September 11, 1939, a fire broke out in one of the waterfront docks behind Manteo's business district, destroying sixteen businesses and one large dwelling. The loss was estimated at $200,000, and because the buildings were wooden frame, the insurance covered only ten percent. Manteo is rebuilding, and in place of the old wooden structures, modern, brick buildings are rising.
