Barbara Snowden of the Currituck Historical Society and the Historic Preservation Commission discussed the need to begin planning for the upcoming 350th anniversary celebration for Currituck County and neighboring Northeastern North Carolina counties in 2018. The year-long celebration will include a general Albemarle regional celebration and a county-wide celebration. Ms. Snowden requested that Currituck County contribute to the general celebration and set aside funds for Currituck County's event. The Northeastern North Carolina counties celebration will include a traveling exhibit, an historic site passport stamp program and several events at Museum of the Albemarle, with the original charter on display.
Mrs. Snowden said a location nor date have been established yet for the main celebration in Currituck County and would like the Board of Commissioners to appoint a planning committee made up of residents from all areas of the county.
