Many newcomers to the Outer Banks who are browsing the local restaurants, shops and area attractions online or in the local guide books notice an interesting addition to the standard address. Besides the typical business name, street name, street number and town, many local businesses also include a Milepost number. This may initially appear to be an odd notation to include, but on the Outer Banks, this is incredibly helpful to new visitors on the lookout for a specific restaurant or shop.
Get back to nature and learn about national and local indigenous people at the Frisco Native American Museum and Natural History Center.
Located in Frisco, the year round Museum holds a collection of Native American artifacts from Hatteras Island as well as other American Indian cultures. There are natural history displays and exhibits to explore that include basketry and pottery, and galleries filled with native art thread through the building that includes educational text as well as a dug-out canoe discovered on museum property and items recovered from the site of East Carolina University's archaeological dig at Buxton Village.
In addition to traditional exhibits and tours, the museum's activities include Native American workshops, Scout badge work, school science projects, Native American studies, programs for the visually impaired, senior citizen seminars, and special events such as a Pow Wow and living history weekend. Contact the museum to schedule programs at least two weeks in advance. Weekly summer programs on birding and archeology are included in the admission. Visit the gift store and shop for native crafts.
