Alice’s Teahouse

We know a good deal about Alice’s living quarters on Bogue Banks, but information about what she called the Teahouse is sparser. What we do know makes the history of this wooden beach structure worthy of attention and raises additional questions.

Conversation at Willis Seafood

A good way to get information about early days on Bogue Banks is to talk with people whose ancestors were here. We are fortunate to be able to talk with several generations of Salter Path’s residents. One of those conversations took place at Willis Seafood Market in Salter Path on November 7, 2014.

As it was in 2015. Original had been rebuilt after a fire.
