Abstract:
This Coast Guard branch has a long and illustrious history of saving lives throughout the Crystal Coast waterways. Among the seven stations established in 1871, it has the distinction of maintaining its original buildings, such as the original 1874 station and 1907 Midgett House. The station established to respond to the area’s propensity for shipwrecks also has the distinction of participating in wartime rescue missions, such as the crew from the torpedoed SS Mirlo.

The United States Coast Guard, created by Congress in 1790, is cited as America's oldest maritime service. North Carolina’s Coast Guard, employed in nine stations anchored along the Crystal Coast, has provided service on a national level, in missions such as rescuing 14 of 16 HMS Bounty crew members during Hurricane Sandy. On a state level, services are illustrated in enforcing federal laws, patrolling waterways, and assuring watercraft are operated safely.
