Built in 1915 as the world's largest pumping station, the Mattamuskeet Lodge is a storied part of Hyde's past, as well as an integral part of the county's future. From classroom to hunting lodge to CCC headquarters, this historic structure remains a constant thread in Hyde's history, heritage and economy.
Due to structural problems, the lodge has remained closed since 2000. Restoration efforts began in 2006. Due to budget restraints with the Wildlife Resources Commission, the project has been delayed.
