The furnace and preserved buildings are curated by The Nature Conservancy. There are lovely walks under the loblolly pines and the signs and descriptive text help it come alive. This is a good place to visit on a hot day, it is shady and lovely.

Great exhibit just five minutes north of Snow Hill. Cottages showing life on the shore at the turn of the century. Volunteers rotate (like blacksmiths, broom makers, gardeners, etc). Staff is extremely knowledgable. This is a must see as life in this area was not...More
