Lighthouse They Couldn't Build

Record #:
Lighthouses are a familiar site along the coastline, and this article looks at a particular location along Diamond Shoals that was so inhospitable a lighthouse could not be constructed. The government attempted to place lighthouses at that location on two different occasions. The final solution was not a permanent installment but a lightship. The history and cost of these projects are outlined in this article.
