      Ocracoke's long history has some interesting highlights, but none of the local legends and legacies are as far-reaching or as popular as the island's local pirates. As the temporary home to a crew of notorious buccaneers, including Blackbeard himself, Ocracoke is the destination of choice for pirate lovers who want to explore the stomping. Ocracoke’s little league baseball players, coaches, family and fans have been having so much fun this spring that the joy of it should be jumping off the page. Trust the Recipe 03/19/ - .

      North Carolina's Ocracoke island has produced a remarkably cohesive community of islanders. For more than two centuries, these Ocracokers lived in relative isolation, enjoying the beauty and battling the destructive forces of the Atlantic. In the past two decades, tourists discovered this "unique fishing village by the sea," and the tiny island was forever altered.   Ocracoke is a very special place in the modern-day world. The island and the locals truly understand the importance of the rich history that it holds. Organizations such as the Ocracoke Foundation, the Working Waterman’s Exhibit, and Ocracoke Alive are all working to promote island history in ways it has not been done before.

      One of Ocracoke's oldest attractions is also its liveliest: the wild mustangs of the Ocracoke Pony Pen. The "pen" is actually a large enclosure that takes up a large portion of Ocracoke Island's northern soundside region, and a parking area bordering the enclosure's feeding stations and shelters, just a few miles south of the Hatteras Ferry. The museum also features a gift shop filled with books, trinkets and treasures pertaining to Ocracoke Island history, and upstairs, visitors can make an appointment to browse the extensive research library for a wealth of historical documents, photos, manuscripts, and other resources covering Ocracoke's long history. Efforts are underway to.
