The Bodie Island Lighthouse has stood on the Outer Banks for 141 years. In all that time it had only been open to the public for a few days in 1988 during the U.S. Lighthouse Service bicentennial celebration. The black-and-white striped-tower later underwent a $5 million restoration, and in October 2013, 300 descendants of the 34 keepers gathered there to share their stories of growing up at the lighthouse.
