Three historic properties supervised by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources each offer a world of adventure in its own location. From the nation’s first settlement in 1585 at Roanoke Island, to the colonial palace of Governor William Tryon or the one of the finest battleships of World War II, visitors can feel the lives of people from the past.
