Abstract

This collection traces the history of the construction of Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park and improvements to Wanchese Harbor in Wanchese, North Carolina a fishing village on the south end of Roanoke Island. A component of the project was the stabilization of Oregon Inlet (the closest point of access to the ocean for local fishing boats) by the construction of jetties. Although they lobbied for 30 years, the jetties were never built. This collection consists of newspaper clippings releated to Oregon Inlet and the Wanchese Harbor Project.
