Things have been happening at the corner of Moore and Davis Streets
Southport, NC. Digging and planning have been going on to turn
the barracks located at
Ft. Johnston into the new home of the Museum. This project is a
community wide effort in Southeastern NC as the final structure
expects to welcome more than 100,000 guests per year.
Fund raising activities will
be the next step taken. This step will precede the finalization of
the structural plans as the monies needed to support the renovation
must be raised immediately. Concept sketches for the new structure
are being studied. They have a feel of being a part of the greater
