We are pleased to make available this historic resource study, part of our ongoing effort to provide comprehensive documentation for the historic structures and landscapes of National Park Service units in the Southeast Field Area. Following a field survey of park resources and extensive research, the project team updated the park's List of Classified Structures, developed historic contexts, and prepared new National Register of Historic Places documentation. Many individuals and institutions contributed to the successful completion of this work. We would particularly like to thank Cape Hatteras Group Superintendent Russell W. Berry, Jr., Assistant Superintendent Mary Collier, Museum Curator Steve Harrison, and Wright Brothers National Memorial Historian Darrell Collins for their assistance. We hope that this study will prove valuable to park management and others in understanding and interpreting the historical significance of the park's cultural resources.
