Overview


Serving as an early port for the shipping interests of New World colonists, Carteret County has enjoyed a long and rich history, one dependent on both the nurturing and destructive character of the sea. Founded by a community of tough and hardy seafarers, the county’s earliest towns, Beaufort, Portsmouth Village, and Morehead City, blossomed into centers of culture, attracting entrepreneurs, recreational hunters and fishermen, families looking for new beginnings, celebrities, and eventually, tourists. This volume, with over 200 extraordinary black-and-white images, captures 100 years of life in Carteret County, from the beginning of the twentieth century to its end. An enchanting visual tour of the Carteret of yesteryear, Carteret County explores the early families, such as the Moreheads, Arendells, and Webbs, that made their homes along the coastline and in the various island communities, the fishermen applying coordination and skill with cast nets and long nets from small vessels to larger trawlers, the men and women laboring in the wharf’s fishhouses, and the everyday citizens who worked, played, and lived on the edges of the Crystal Coast.
