The Museum of the Albemarle interprets the cultural history of 13 northeastern North Carolina counties: Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hertford, Hyde, Northampton, Perquimans, Pasquotank, Tyrrell and Washington. This area, known as the Albemarle Region, surrounds one of the world’s largest freshwater sounds. The Albemarle Sound is named for George Monck, an English general who aided Charles II in reclaiming the British throne. In exchange for this service, King Charles bestowed on Monck the title of “Duke of the Albemarle” and granted him the land of Carolina—North and South Carolina and lower Virginia.
