Question 1 of 11
Originally, I traveled between Johnson City, Tennessee and Cranberry, North Carolina. Now, you can hear my “tweet-tweet” on a three-mile round trip. Where am I?
Question 2 of 11
You say you want a revolution? Well, one was fought here in 1776 – in fact you could say I started it for North Carolina.
Question 3 of 11
I was “born” in 1941 and started work in the Navy right away. I’m both a National Historic Landmark and a State Historic Site. Some of my friends call me a “showboat.” Who am I?
Question 4 of 11
You’ll see all kinds of monuments here, including this replica of a statue of George Washington. If you take a tour, you may see the Governor or the Lt. Governor. Who am I?
Question 5 of 11
I’ve guarded Beaufort Harbor since the early 19th century, although if you visit now you’re more likely to see collies than cannonballs.
Question 6 of 11
I’m a house but no one lives in me. I started to shine in December of 1875, but needed a keeper for years. I keep watch over a “graveyard” that has no caskets.

Question 8 of 11
If you heard my name, you might think I’ve lost all of my hair. It’s true – I’ve been washed many times and I’m shiny on top, but there’s no hat that can fit me.
Question 9 of 11
O, can you spell my name? Even if you can’t, if you visit me you’ll be able to step back in time a few hundred years when walking among these wigwams.
Question 10 of 11
My surroundings sure have changed since I was built in the 1760s. My original owner? You could say he was a “Capital” fellow.
Question 11 of 11
No, I wasn’t named for a planet from Star Wars – I was built over 120 years earlier. But with the hot temperatures you could feel around me, you could say “I earned” my name.
