On Solid Ground

Abstract:
In the 19th-century North Carolina had dozens of sound and river lighthouses, besides its more famous coastal ones. Standing 12 feet above the water, these two-story, four-sided structures of a 1,000 square feet functioned like today's highway markers. The Roanoke River Lighthouse originally stood at the mouth of the river near Plymouth. This lighthouse was relocated to Edenton where it awaits restoration.
