Self-Guided Historic Tours

This summer Fiddler Dave put a bug in my ear. He suggested developing a self-guided island tour. Lou Ann & I thought that was a splendid idea. After a couple of months of research and hard work we have created two brand new historic tours.

Unlike the ghost walks, these tours are all about history, stories, and local anecdotes. They are wonderful introductions to Ocracoke island and are recorded and uploaded to MP3 players. This means you can rent them at your convenience and enjoy the stories as you walk or bike through the village. They are designed for folks who are new to Ocracoke as well as those of you who have been visiting the island for years.

Take a look at our web page for more information, including frequently asked questions. Just click here.

This month's newsletter is a story of Captain Joe Burrus, last Ocracoke lighthouse keeper before the beacon was electrified and automated. You can read it here.


  1. What a great idea! I can't wait to take an audio tour the next time I'm on Ocracoke! The price is very reasonable considering all the hard work and time that you probably put into it. Thanks for making an Ocracoke vacation even more wonderful!

    Great idea! Made even better if Fiddler Dave and the rest of Molasses Creek could provide some background music...
