Wikipedia Description: Fort Raleigh National Historic Site
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fort Raleigh National Historic Site preserves the location of Roanoke Colony, the first English settlement in North America.
The historic site is off of U.S. Highway 64 on the north end of Roanoke Island, North Carolina. The fate of Sir Walter Raleigh's "Lost Colony" remains a mystery. The site is also home to the outdoor symphonic drama Paul Green's The Lost Colony, performed in the Waterside Theatre during the summer since 1937 and presented by the Roanoke Island Historical Association. Within the historic site are the Elizabethan Gardens, managed by the Garden Club of North Carolina, created as a memorial to the first colonists and as an example of a period garden.
Fort Raleigh National Historic Site was established on April 5, 1941, through a transfer of property to the National Park Service under a cooperative agreement with the Roanoke Island Historical Association (RIHA) and Acting Secretary of the Interior Alvin J. Wirtz, using authority provided under the Historic Sites Act of 1935. As with all historic areas administered by the National Park Service, the site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966. Fort Raleigh is co-managed with two other Outer Banks parks, Wright Brothers National Memorial and Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and is the location of the group headquarters at the northern end of Roanoke Island. The cooperative agreement of 1941 allows RIHA to stage theatrical performances in the Waterside Theatre also on park property. Paul Green's play, "The Lost Colony," has been performed at this theater, with an interlude during World War II, since 1937. The site was preserved for its national significance in relation to the founding of the first English settlement in North America in 1587. However, the colony, which was promoted and backed by entrepreneurs led by Englishman Sir Walter Raleigh, failed someti ...More...

1964 photos: From 1963 to 1966, our family lived in Chappaqua, New York while Dad worked for Standard Oil of New Jersey in the 30 Rock building in New York City.
From 1954 to 1975, the bulk of these pictures were taken by my Dad, Glenn Guthrie At the time, he was using a complicated, but normal for the day, manual Kodak with light meters and such. All of Dad's pictures from this time were slides.
Image quality is going to be variable because these are scans of slides and/or prints.
The images shown here were scanned in two phases. In the early years of the website, I rescanned a selection of pre-digital images, all at fairly low quality settings. During the COVID pandemic, I launched the Great Rescanning Effort, rescanning ALL of my pre-digital images from various media (prints, slides, negatives, etc) at higher resolution and quality settings. Mutilple versions of images -- some from the initial scannning phase, some from prints, some from slides/negatives -- were posted so there are frequently duplicate images on the same page. At some point, I hope to have time to do a final review and get rid of the duplicates but that'll have to wait until all of the pre-digital images are finally posted.
Family trips this year: Michigan (mom's family) and Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.
