Howard Street

Any trip to Ocracoke would be incomplete without a visit to Howard Street. No other island thoroughfare has the history and charm it boasts. This narrow sandy lane is lined with historic homes, several of the largest live oaks on the island, and numerous family cemeteries dating from the early 1800s.

Howard Street has even been memorialized in a beautiful song by Fiddler Dave Tweedie of the island's Molasses Creek Band.

Of course, Village Craftsmen, our gallery of fine American handcrafts is also located on Howard Street.

When visiting the island be sure to include a stroll down historic Howard Street.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is the entertaining story of Calvin Wilkerson and his Condomed Nautilus. You can read it here:

    A beautiful story and a beautiful song. If not too much to ask for, would you please write out the words to the song?

    That was quite a beautiful love song to Howard Street and the people of the island.
