Ocracoke is one of the few remaining working maritime communities. Round out your Ocracoke cultural education and learn about the life and history of the local Ocracoke watermen at this exhibit. Located at the former Will Willis Store & Fish House on the Community Square docks, the exhibit explores the traditions and daily lives of island watermen, past and present. The mission of the exhibit is to educate people about the important link between community, environment, traditional work methods and the local economy — and of course the benefit of buying fresh, local seafood! The exhibit is open usually from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. throughout the summer. While you're there, sit on the porch and enjoy the scenic view of the Ocracoke Lighthouse across Silver Lake Harbor.
