Navy Base

Below is an old photo of the Ocracoke Navy Base. It was located where the National Park Service Visitors Center is situated today. I have added three arrows and text boxes to help viewers understand the orientation. The NCCAT building (the former US Coast Guard Station) is in the upper left; the pre-WWII Coast Guard Station (no longer extant) is to the right of the NCCAT building; and the large cylindrical water cistern (the only other structure still remaining) is slightly above and to the left of the center of the photo. A small area of Pamlico Sound is visible at the top of the photo. Silver Lake harbor is off the picture, on the left.
