Northern Coastland Adventures

Record #:
The coast is often called North Carolina's cradle of civilization--the place where a group of colonists faded into history as the 'Lost Colony,' and man took his first steps toward space on the Wright Brothers plane. Verna describes four places to visit: Deadwood in Martin County, a family-owned, western-themed park; Merchants Millpond State Park in Gates County, featuring 3,259 acres of coastal pond and southern swamp forest habitats; Somerset Place in Washington County, a 37-acre state historic site that affords a glimpse into 19th-century plantation life; and the Cape Lookout National Seashore in Carteret County, three undeveloped barrier islands half-a-mile wide containing a lost town, lighthouse, and solitude.
