Colonial History Days

NC School Groups will experience life during Colonial Times with hands-experiences from Friday & Saturday, October 13 - 14 in Colonial Park near the 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse. Staff and volunteers will be demonstrating colonial crafts and games for all ages and The Silver Chalice, a 16th century tender boat for the Elizabeth II will be visiting the harbor. such tender boats were necessary for transporting passengers and cargo to and from land since the large ships could not navigate the shallow coastal waters. The Elizabeth II will be not be included in this event.
