Roanoke Island's Festival Park Blends Heritage, the Arts and the Environment


Author(s):
Abstract:
Lea discusses the Roanoke Island Festival Park. The park, which had its beginnings in 1983, is located in Manteo on a 120-acre island and marsh in Dough Creek. The Elizabeth II, a replica of one of the ships that made the Roanoke Voyages, is docked there. Twenty-seven acres of the island are set aside for a museum complex, history center, art gallery, a settlement site where the life of soldiers and craftsmen who arrived on the Elizabeth II is interpreted, and an outdoor pavilion.
