Our County’s historical legacy is preserved in many forms. We have an extensive collection of artifacts from the many families and events of Carteret County, dating back to the 1600s. Our artifact collection is one of the most dynamic collections of the museum. We are often asked if we would like to have a family heirloom of historical significance, or something our members or the public has come across which further knits together the history of Carteret County. If you have such an artifact, we would love to have you bring it by for our professional staff to take a look at. If it is something we can use in our museum, or further expand our historical archives, we will be happy to take possession and credit the appropriate individuals with your item. Please contact us for more information on how we can help preserve these unique and treasured items.
