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

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.
