We preserve the history of The Pea Island Life Saving Station and African American keeper Richard Etheridge.
I value the Pea Island Preservation Society’s work to share the legacy of Keeper Richard Etheridge and the Black, local crew that served our nation at the Life Saving Station during a time when Blacks didn’t even have the right to vote. During their time of service, the crew and Keeper Etheridge received no awards for their heroic work, but the Pea Island Preservation Society helps to remember their amazing sacrifices, dedication, and legacy. They offer lessons in our schools, and a museum converted from the original Cookhouse, which they were able to relocate from Rodanthe to Manteo in order to share and preserve this rich history. They’re awesome, and I know that our funds could greatly help them keep up their powerful work.
