Research Library
Upstairs, our unique research library has a growing number of historical, genealogical, photographic and other resources relevant to Ocracoke history. Here you can find out how to square dance Ocracoke style, learn more about the island's historic 1823 lighthouse, British Cemetery, wild ponies, hurricanes and the World War II Naval Base on Ocracoke, not to mention tracking down your ancestors. 

These materials can be viewed by prior appointment by contacting us. A lot more information can be found on the Roots Web Hyde County site. A good start for information about the Howard family can be found at the Philip Howard's blog Ocracoke Island Journal. We look forward to welcoming you to our museum in person.

The winter of 2015 will find us continuing work to catalog, organize and digitize our collections to make them easily accessible to the public.
