It was a "lightering" town, where ships heavy with cargo had to unload to smaller boats that could navigate the shallow Ocracoke Inlet. But the Civil War and the dredging of a deeper inlet at Hatteras were the beginning of the end for Portsmouth. By 1956 there were 17 inhabitants; the last two left in 1971. Today the public can tour the visitor center, the one-room schoolhouse, the post office and general store, the Methodist church, and the turn-of-the-20th-century Life Saving Station (a multiroom Coast Guard station).

It's furnished with English and American antiques corresponding to Governor Tryon's inventory. The stately John Wright Stanly House
(circa 1783), theGeorge W. Dixon House
(circa 1830), theRobert Hay House
