This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Emerald Isle in Carteret County, North Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Emerald Isle, NC is a 29-mile stretch of island on the lower Outer Banks between Morehead City and Jacksonville.
- Area: 5 Square Miles
Interesting factoids: In 1951, seven individuals purchased the 12-mile stretch of island for $350,000 from Anita Maulick. Emerald Isle was sliced into 54 blocks of 1,000 feet, each going from ocean to sound. The partners drew from a hat for the ownership of blocks. Its beaches are a favorite location for nesting sea turtles. The turtles nesting on the beaches there are protected by federal law. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
This map can be personalized (at no additional charge) with up to two lines of engraving. Leave notes during checkout and we will email a graphic proof to you for approval prior to production. Example:
