As The Raleigh Historical Corporation Inc. aims to meet the challenges of its developmental projects, we hope to bring our cultural heritage to you. In partaking in our restorations, we plan to keep the present community alive with the re-building on the past way of life. We will give you, the visitor, the bountiful knowledge of our ancestors and the obstacles they had to overcome in order to survive. A trip to Raleigh, will be a trip back to the 1950s, in the heyday of the fishery—the fishery which built the island and bred into us the people we are today. It will be offering you the chance to explore the ocean, to learn the trials of the fishery and to survive against the odds. But, moreover, a trip to Raleigh will offer you the most important thing of all—the chance to explore the innermost region of the person you really are; your ability to endure, your will to persist and your determination to meet every challenge head on.
Come visit us for the rarity of our flora, the wonders of our geology and the undisputed beauty of our province. But, most of all, visit us for the adventure of our past. The spirit of our forefathers will remain embedded into your heart long after you have gone, it will allow you to accomplish new heights of personal achievement. We eagerly await your arrival.Home > About Us
