Hampton Mariners Museum Explores the State's Relationship to the Sea

Record #:
The Hampton Mariner's Museum in Beaufort was an outgrowth of an idea former state legislator Roy W. Hampton had in 1952. Hampton later died, and along with a lack of state funding, the museum languished. The cause was taken up in 1975 by Charles McNeill. This article describes the museum's growth and development from that point.
