The Museum of Coastal Carolina is proud to present the story of the Fort Fisher Hermit presented by Fred Pickler on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 6 p.m. In 1955, following a brief stay at a mental health facility, Robert E. Harrill, hitchhiked from his home in Morganton, NC, to Fort Fisher, NC, on the North Carolina Coast (a distance of about 260 miles). He settled into an abandoned World War II era artillery bunker and eked out a meager existence in the tidal marsh. This self-imposed exile transformed Harrill from hermit and squatter to local celebrity and media darling. He eventually became the second greatest tourist attraction in North Carolina trailing only the USS North Carolina in number of visitors.

June – often the month of new beginnings as evidenced by events such as weddings, graduations, sea turtle nests, and the first day of summer. Each day can be a new beginning for each of us if we so choose. It only takes a few minutes to thank God for the opportunity of new beginnings in our lives and to ask Him to take our hand and lead us as we begin new life journeys.
Gentle Reminder: Our beautiful Chapel on the Green is available to all Sea Trail residents to use and enjoy. Events such as small weddings, commemorations and memorials can be held at the Chapel. However, for these types of events there is an application process that needs to occur to ensure certain guidelines are followed.
