The Life Savers

Record #:
The Lifesaving Service was the forerunner of the United States Coast Guard. In North Carolina there were twenty-nine lifesaving stations covering the Outer Banks from Wash Wood to Cape Fear. The first seven were erected in 1874. Schenck describes life at a lifesaving station and some of the rescues.
