Meet Ralph Lane

Record #:
Sir Ralph Lane led the second failed expedition to Roanoke Island in 1585. Lane's detailed descriptions of Roanoke Island and his story became part of Paul Green's outdoor drama, The Lost Colony. Today, a mannequin of his likeness is featured at the Northampton County Welcome Center and is dressed in a Lost Colony costume designed by renowned costume designer William Ivey Long.
