Steamer Oriental Grounding Day - May 16

On May 16, 1862, the National Steamer Oriental ran aground in the waters off the Outer Banks. Decades later, legend has it, a little town along the water was named after the wreck by a former Outer Banks resident. Without that wreck, our little town wouldn’t be the same.

An article from 2012 tells the tale: Shipwreck of The ‘Oriental’ 150 Years Ago This Month

Happy Grounding Day.
