It's a beautiful Spring day. This evening at 6:30 Ocracoke will host a community pot luck dinner to welcome our new principal, Mr. George Ortman, and his family.
On this date in 1861 the brig "Black Squall" wrecked on Ocracoke's beach. This tragedy is related to Ocracoke's second murder. You can read about it here.
The "Black Squall" was of note also because it was carrying an entire circus troupe from Cuba to NYC. Look for more of this story in a future Ocracoke Newsletter.
