Outer Banks site listed on Underground Railroad

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The spotlight shines on a little-known chapter of Civil War history this week as a site on North Carolina’s Outer Banks is included in the Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program.

A monument will be dedicated Wednesday at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras to what was called the Hotel De Afrique.

Following federal capture of Confederate forts Hatteras and Clark in August, 1861, about 100 slaves from eastern North Carolina made their way to freedom on the Outer Banks. There, in return for food and shelter, they helped Union troops load ships and build fortifications during the remaining years of the war.

The freed slaves stayed in at least nine wooden buildings, one of them called the Hotel De Afrique. The buildings are long gone.
