To this day it is still a mystery concerning the disappearance of Henry Berry however, his legend lives on forever.
On March 7th, 1887 the Croatan Normal School was established with only 15 students. Today it is known as the University of North Carolina at Pembroke with an enrollment of over 6,000 and growing.
