Fodor's Review

In the center of town, the historic site consists of 10 buildings dating from 1732 to 1859, eight 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; guided tours are available. Tours of the entire historic site, either on an English-style double-decker bus or by guided walk, depart from the visitor center.
