Dallas White-Wells can remember when the young people in Morehead City always had something to do. “Now it’s mostly for retirees and beach people.” White-Wells was born on Bay Street in Morehead City, NC.

Now the community around her street has seen an influx of white residents, and with it, a change in its relationship to Calico Creek.
