The Light that Failed and Came Back

Record #:
Old Cape Hatteras Light, guardian of the most dreaded shoals of the Atlantic, is back in service. First built in 1870, the lighthouse seemed to totter on the shore as the Banks shifted from winds and currents. In 1936, projects began to stabilize the shifting sands. The creation of fences, sand dunes, and sea grass patches have helped drive back the encroaching shore from the light, securing it for now.
