The BIC is pleased to consider your authentic artifact or photo from the Barrier Islands as a gift or loan to the museum. While we are unable to accept every item due to limited space, we would love to learn more about any artifact you might have - as well as the stories behind them. Please contact Museum Director Monika Bridgforth to discuss your artifact. 


Do you have an interesting first-hand story about life on the Barrier Islands? We'd love to hear it! Do you know someone who tales about those good ol’ days out on the islands? Ask them to share! Please contact the BIC, and consider allowing us to record an oral history. We want to make sure that generations of children and grandchildren can continue to learn about their past. 

The oral history recording studio is also available to those who would like to preserve their personal story for family and friends.
