The outbreak of World War II brought about new challenges and opportunities, and the women of the lower Cape Fear were no exception. Learn how women took on roles and occupations that had seemed out of reach just a few years earlier.

The free Deep Dive into History drop-in program, which is designed for all ages, combines live interpretation, material culture displays and hands-on activities to help visitors understand how seafarers of old explore the world. Registration is not required.
