Lost Lights


Abstract:
While many people know the state's seven famous coastal lighthouses, few know that in the 19th-century North Carolina had dozens of sound and river lighthouses. Standing twelve feet above the water, these two-story, four-sided structures of a 1,000 square feet functioned like today's highway markers. The lighthouses at Croatan River, Roanoke Marshes River, Long Shoal River, Neuse River, Roanoke River, and Pamlico Point are profiled.
