It's that time of year again. Here are some OBX Halloween happenings:
Past local residents of Elizabeth City, aka Jr. Docents as costumed interpreters, tell their stories. Hear from Blackbeard, Anne Bonny, a Civil War soldier, an Albemarle suffragette, Nell Cropsy, a past North Carolina governor, and other notorious Albemarle residents. Take a map and explore the cemetery on your own afterwards. For more information please call 252-335-1453.
