The Roanoke Island Freedmen’s Colony is recognized as a historic National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Site. A marker was erected in 2001 to designate the site of a permanent colony on Roanoke Island between 1862 and 1867. Most of its 3,000 residents had been slaves three years earlier in northeastern North Carolina. Today, there is a path through the woods north of Fort Raleigh that leads visitors to a commemorative park along Croatan Sound.
