Fort Raleigh

This National Park Service site protects and preserves portions of England’s first New World settlements from 1584 to 1590 as well as the cultural heritage of the Native Americans, European Americans and African Americans who have lived on Roanoke Island. Visitors can explore a museum and an earthen fort, attend programs and watch a short film. There’s also a nice nature trail, which leads to a Freedmen's Colony memorial on the Roanoke Sound.
