By now, islanders and visitors have
noticed the attractive new signs along Highway 12 on Hatteras Island
that designate the road as the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway and
direct visitors to area landmarks and points of interest.
The scenic byway was the topic of
conversation on the latest edition of "To the Point," the
Radio Hatteras interview show hosted by Island Free Press editor
Nolan had two guests for the interview
who answered all of the questions folks have about the scenic byway
and what it means for the communities through which it passes.
Mary Helen Goodloe-Murphy of Rodanthe
has been a leader in the effort to establish the byway as the
chairman of the Outer Banks National Scenic Byway committee for more
than a decade.
Doug Stover, the cultural resources
manager and historian for the Cape Hatteras National Seashore until
his retirement several years ago, is the author of a new book, 'The
Outer Banks Scenic Byway," which is chock full of vintage photos
and information about the culture and history of the area and its one
and only highway.
