🥳🧁🍾🎈🎉 Happy 53rd Birthday to Museum of the Albemarle! 🥳🧁🍾🎈🎉
From its inauspicious beginnings in an old highway patrol building in 1967 to its 50,000 square foot facility on the Elizabeth City waterfront today, the Museum of the Albemarle for 53 years has told an expansive story of the people and culture of northeastern North Carolina. Programming in its 53rd anniversary year of service holds true to its mission offering education and interpretation on the region and beyond.
“From American Indians to watermen to the Coast Guard, we are committed to presenting both well-known and obscure facts about the region,” says Museum Curator Wanda Lassiter. “We offer the old and new, the familiar and unique, so that we will remain fresh and a valued asset to all citizens as we go into our next 50 years.”
The Museum of the Albemarle encourages citizens and visitors to understand the past, reflect on their own lives and to preserve this history for future generations.
