Guiding Lights


Author(s):
Abstract:
The eight coastal lighthouses are among the state's best-known symbols. However, they are not the state's only lights. Beacon lights were used at Ocracoke Inlet as early as 1715, and through the years, almost 30 other lighthouses and light ships have guided mariners. Most have been lost to warfare, neglect, and weather, so that only eight remain at the end of the 20th-century.
