My wife and I are locals but we love coming through and revisiting the old bearing ground once every six months or year. If we have friends coming from out of town we always bring them here.

Anytime you are at the Atlantic Beach NC area it would be worth your time to walk thru this old grave yard. It's filled with some strange history!!
