Learn about us!

The Ocracoke Preservation Society is a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to the preservation of Ocracoke Island's rich historical and cultural heritage.

The Ocracoke Preservation Society was founded in 1983 and has been located in the historical David Williams House since 1992. This traditional two-story house was built around the year 1900. Its owner, David Williams, was the first Chief of the U.S. Coast Guard station on Ocracoke. The house is a contributing structure in the Ocracoke Historic District. In 1989, it was moved to its present location on National Park Service property to prevent its demolition and was subsequently restored.

We first opened our doors to the public in June of 1992. The ground floor rooms have been converted to serve as our museum and the second floor contains a research library and our administrative offices. The house and surrounding Ocracoke Historic District property are on the National Register of Historic Places.

With the help of your generous donations, the OPS museum remains admission-free.
