Here is a quiz for our long-time readers. The following photo was taken sometime in the late 1990s on Ocracoke Island.

  • Where was the picture taken?
  • What is the name of the business?
  • Who are the two people in the photo?
If you know the answers to any of the above questions please leave a comment.  Also, if you have any stories about anyone or anything in the photo please share them.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is a history of the Ocracoke Lighthouse, with information (and an artist's sketch) about the earliest lantern room. You can read the Newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/ocracoke-lighthouse/.   


  1. Owens Veggies on Lighthouse Road! Owen is one of the men, but I don't know the other man. Kathi

  2. Owen and Lawton at the veggie stand. Took me 0.5 seconds.

  3. Sundae12:37 PM

    Awww, good memories. Miss them both!

  4. Yes, that's right -- Owen Gaskill on the left (unfortunately his hand is covering his face) and Lawton Howard on the right. Ownen's grandson, Parker Gaskill, and Lawton's granddaughter, Zoe Howard, are both sailors in this summer's production of A Tale of Blackbeard.
