Oldest Grocery Store On Hatteras Island

Record #:
The oldest grocery store on Hatteras Island was started in 1866 by C. B. Stowe and A. J. Stowe. The business has remained in the same family and has been in three or four buildings. An old ledger book describes how the business was run, costs of items and what people purchased, and debtor boat accounts, which were items purchased for use with boats.
