In the center of town, the historic site consists of 10 buildings dating from 1732 to 1859, 8 of which have been restored, including the 1796 Carteret County Courthouse and the 1859 Apothecary Shop and Doctor's Office. Don't miss the Old Burying Grounds (1709), where Otway Burns, a privateer in the War of 1812, is buried under his ship's cannon; a nine-year-old girl who died at sea is buried in a rum keg; and an English soldier saluting the king is
buried upright in his grave. Tours, either on an English-style double-decker bus or by guided walk, depart from the visitor center.
