About the Museum & Trails


Frisco Native American Museum had its beginning over seventy years ago in the heart of museum founder, Carl Bornfriend, when he  was just a young boy. When Carl moved to Hatteras Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and met Joyce, they discovered a mutual love for historical preservation. The museum opened in 1987 as a non-profit educational foundation with 501 (c) (3) status. The building, which is almost a hundred years old, has a rich history as a general store and gathering place, post office and shell shop.

The museum’s nature trails wind through several acres of beautiful maritime forest. Two bridges cross a small stream, and the trails overlook a large pond that has an outlet to the sound.
