Many of our readers know that the Ocracoke Preservation Society recently used its gift from the Geraldine Beveridge Estate to purchase the Emma and Simon O'Neal House on Lighthouse Road.
This is a house that was built about 100 years ago and is of great historic value in Ocracoke Village. Trudy Clark, chair of OPS's Historic Preservation Committee reports that they have had about a half dozen personal inquiries and that "the brochures are flying off the fence out front."
They are looking for that buyer who will restore the home to historic specifications (and thus enjoy the benefit of generous tax credits). For more information about all of this, you can visit ocracokepreservation.org.
