Please help us reopen the Midgett House after the July 2nd lightning strike. Cornelius and Daisy Midgett built this house in 1907 and in 2006 Bette Gray & Trish Midgette donated and moved this little house to Chicamacomico. Furnished as a Hatteras Island family may have lived back in the day, she has since been one of our most adored exhibits.

On July 2nd she sustained a lightning strike that damaged the north facing roof, chimney and much of the interior. As you can see, we will need your help to restore this home.
