Ocracoke Audio Tours

Quick Links:  Gallery

Before the U.S. Navy dredged the harbor in the late 1930s, two tidal streams or guts snaked out of the southeast side of Silver Lake. These guts effectively divided Ocracoke Village into two distinct regions. The Around Creek side of the village was the area north and northeast of the guts and the Down Point side was the area west and southwest of the guts.

The Around Creek  and Down Point audio tours were narrated by Philip Howard (owner of Village Craftsmen and Ocracoke Ghost and History Tours) and Lou Ann Homan.
