Fish House Update

Yesterday Margie Brooks, Executive Director of the Hyde County Chamber of Commerce sent an email with the following information from the NC Division of tourism newsletter about Ocracoke's Fish House:


OCRACOKE'S LAST REMAINING FISH HOUSE NO LONGER FLOUNDERING

After being resurrected from near-demise, Ocracoke's last remaining fish house now seems to be on its way to a more secure future. The N.C. Rural Economic Development Center has agreed to provide a grant for $325,000 to pay back a bridge loan to Hyde County, which in turn relieves Ocracoke Seafood Co. of its debt. The county will then formulate a legal agreement with the Ocracoke Working Watermen's Association, operators of the fish house.


Everyone is delighted with this news. To find out more, click here.
