Ocracoke Museum






This two-story house was built around the year 1900. Its first occupant David Williams was the first captain of the Coast Guard Life-Saving Station of Ocracoke. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In 1989, it was moved to its present location on National Park Service property to prevent its demolition and was subsequently restored. We opened our doors to the public the following year. The ground floor rooms have been converted to our museum. The second floor contains a research library and administrative offices. In midsummer, we host talks about local historic subjects on our back porch. Come on in, we hope you enjoy your visit!
