Fort Raleigh National Historic Site - Roanoke Island, NC

Having been to the Outer Banks area several times and never stopping at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, I was excited to be going there for the first time on my latest trip. I will admit though, I was a bit disappointed after we had walked around for a bit, not so much for what was there, but what wasn't there.

I really don't know what I was expecting, but after reading accounts of the lost colony on Roanoke Island, I guess I just expected more than what the historic site has to offer. It's a simple site that includes a small visitor center, some informational signs, a reconstruction of Fort Raleigh and then several nature trails that take you through the area.
