Stories are a shared history that connects us to everything around us - people, objects, animals, or places. It is through stories that we learn about the triumphs, tragedies, daily struggles, challenges and opportunities that have shaped an area and all that can be found within it.

The history of Cape Hatteras National Seashore is rich with stories from the earliest settlements to modern times. Stories of war, piracy, devastating storms, shipwrecks, and moving a lighthouse have all helped shape the seashore and the people who live here.
