In 1868, Dexter Stetson, an experienced lighthouse builder, came from New England to build lighthouses at Cape Hatteras and Bodie Island. His work finished, he vanished into history. Now one hundred years to the date of his death, the man who built the East Coast's best lighthouses has been rediscovered.
The newly opened Bodie Island Lighthouse, on the North Carolina Outer Banks, is a fifteen acre site that is home to not only the light house and and old keeper's residence, but also a variety of wildlife such as snakes, heron, ibis, deer, and otters.
