It focused on the Town of Brunswick, which was the first permanent English settlement in southeastern North Carolina.

It was a way to show visitors what life would have been like during that time period.

They had examples of different trades and skills people had more than two-hundred and fifty years ago.

“All the staff here have a love for teaching, a love for educating at the core of it. That’s what it is, so to teach people about the folks who were here, to teach people about different ways of life, to allow folks to think about what life would have been like over 250 years ago,” assistant site manager Shannon Walker said.

This interactive learning experience was filled with activities for people to enjoy while exploring the past.
