"The area known today as Dare County is a land of paradox and contradiction.
"The first English attempt at colonization in this hemisphere was made within its present boundaries in the 1580s - yet Dare County was not formed until 1870.
"Contained within its borders is an area nearly as large as Rhode Island - yet it is one of North Carolina's smallest counties in terms of land area.
"It is the easternmost county in the state - yet it contains higher elevations within half a mile of the ocean than are found in some other counties far inland.
"It is a land of sea and sounds, of soft breezes and hurricanes, of shipwrecks, pirates, history, and sand - mostly sand. It is a story of beginnings ... For the person who has never been here - or has, and is inquisitive as to how it got this way - here in brief form is the story of Dare County. "
