About

My name is Jenny Maxwell.  In the 1970s, my father–Gilbert Maxwell–and his friend–Arlo Rogers–built a cabin on Core Banks, North Carolina, part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore.

Over the years, my family spent a lot of weekends at that cabin, which was part of a little settlement of some 20 to 30 cabins. Some were simple, like ours, with no electricity and an old-fashioned pump for drawing water from a well.  Others had porches and generators.  We made friends with other families, learned to feed ourselves from the sea, and got a little taste of how hard life might be without highways, telephones and electricity. We loved it.

On this blog, I’m collecting information about our time on Core Banks, the people we’ve long since lost contact with, and other information about Core Banks in general.  If you have information you can add, I hope you will. Thanks!
