More than 2,000 shipwrecks sunk off the Coast of North Carolina in what’s called the Graveyard of the Atlantic. With all that history floating around, it was only natural to build a museum to honor and preserve the maritime culture of the Outer Banks. A state-of-the-art structure, the year round museum houses and displays artifacts, and presents a variety of exhibits and interprets the rich maritime culture that includes war, piracy, ghost ships and more. Artifacts include thoseex from the USS Monitor, which sank 16 miles off the Hatteras coast. The lobby features the stunning and original, 1854, First Order Lens from the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Current hibits include those on piracy and the Civil War on Hatteras Island.
Built in 1988 by Dr. Barrett Welch, the Animal Hospital of Nags Head is a fully-equipped facility that offers a range of services for dog and cats. Wellness care, vaccinations and dental care are provided in a clean, attractive facility for pets’ routine care. When more health needs have to be addressed, there is an in-house lab available for blood work, digital radiology and video endoscope. The hospital also is equipped to do a range of surgeries. A pharmacy and full-service boarding facilities are also on the premises. Specialty dog and cat foods and animal grooming products, vitamins and flea prevention products are available for purchase in the hospital’s waiting room.
Another location for the animal hospital is open five afternoons a week on Hatteras Island in Avon.
