Portsmouth Island has been forgotten, forgotten by the rush of time and technology, to serve as a reminder of when life was simple, and the times hard.

A tiny village separated by ocean waves and frozen in time: Portsmouth Village. Once a thriving port town of hundreds of dedicated fishermen, familes and life savers. its only legacy stands in a handful of buildings easily overlooked and forgotten.

A handful of buildings, a few dedicated caretakers, and, perhaps just perhaps, a few ghosts of shipwrecked lives lost on the treacherous Graveyard of the Atlantic, are all that remain.

Go, spend a day, walk through the lifesaving station where dedicated men kept vigil and risked life when treacherous waves and wind reigned.

View the church, which grounded their lives and held a center stage for all of life - the newborn, the unions, the endings....

The General Store and Post Office which became the social center of life on a secluded island. The gathering place for news, the only contact with the "real world".

The Homes, so few left from the ravages of time and hurricanes... sit on a porch, on a rocking chair ... gaze at the ocean and let your mind drift back.... to a time... to a long-ago time, where seclusion could bring the peace and pleasure of a small community of families....

.... where it could bring....

Blackbeard himself.........
