Museum of the Albemarle

The Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City will host our second monthly History for Lunch on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at 12 p.m.  Aided by author Clark Twiddy, president of Twiddy & Company, Ernie Bowden recounts the tales of a unique life spent on the Currituck Outer Banks that give readers memories to be shared from one generation to the next.  Bowden, a sixth-generation Outer Banker, born just after the end of World War I, shares memories that stretch from the isolation of the early 20th century through the glamor of the world-famous duck clubs of the area and the storms that have shaped its modern-day geography.

Memories of the Currituck Outer Banks:  As Told by Ernie Bowden is available for sale in the Museum Gift Shop.

The Museum will offer the History for Lunch in-person and through Zoom.  Register in advance through the Museum’s Facebook page or website to receive link to attend lecture virtually.

The virtual program is supported by Southern Bank and Biggs Cadillac Buick GMC of Elizabeth City.
