Abstract:
The first light structure built with funds appropriated from Congress, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is included in plans for a new state park that will preserve approximately one thousand acres of surrounding land. The preservation of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse will serve as a monument to the appropriator, Alexander Hamilton, as well as the builder, Major General Henry Dearborn.
