While we were on vacation, we decided to visit some of the local historic sites. We visited Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson. We saw the shell of a church called St. Philips. Brunswick Town was burned by the British during the Revolutionary War.
Not much remains of the town.
We could see what the archeologists had uncovered.
It is hard to imagine people living here, but they did!
The walk lead through the ruins of the town and around the earthen mounds that made up Fort Anderson.
We were glad we visited Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson in the morning, because it was getting very hot when we decided it was time to go! Then we drove to Southport and had lunch at a pizza and sub restaurant before heading to the NC Martime Museum. We got a tour by a museum guide, then took a few photos.
This was our favorite exhibit, but we are a bit sad that these girls are left to live out their days, behind glass without the benefit of body, dress and human companionship!
We had a fun day and learned a lot!
