Local Lore: Morehead Planetarium


Morehead Planetarium opened in 1949, as the first planetarium in the South and the sixth built in the United States. A modern marvel and piece of sophisticated technology when it was built, the Morehead Planetarium was used for more than just star-gazing and educational field trips. In the ’50s, the planetarium served as a training center for celestial navigation. (Chapelboro.com)
