Old Baldy Is Beacon of History


Author(s):
Abstract:
Historic Bald Head Lighthouse, built on Bald Head Island in 1817-1818, is North Carolina's oldest surviving lighthouse. It was neither the first or the last lighthouse to send a guiding beacon to mariners entering the Cape Fear River. Smith chronicles their history.
