The Museum of the Albemarle will host our monthly History for Lunch from Home on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 12 p.m. Sharon Meade, Curator and Community Services Liaison for the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education, will present Hunts Clubs of Currituck County. In the 50-year period from the 1870s to the 1920s more than 100 gunning clubs and lodges were established in a 100-mile-long area of Back Bay and Currituck Sound. Ms. Meads will discuss how this change created a cottage industry and altered the lives, laws, education, and people.
The free and educational virtual program is supported by Southern Bank.
This lecture will be online: register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or website to receive link through the Zoom platform to attend lecture.
