Maritime Heritage Series: Screw-pile Lighthouses of North Carolina

March 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

The lighthouses along North Carolina’s ocean beaches are famous around the nation, probably none more so than the Cape Hatteras lighthouse at Buxton. But these towers weren’t the only structures that helped mariners navigate our waters during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Join Associate Museum Curator Benjamin Wunderly in the museum auditorium for an overview of these screw-pile lighthouses that dotted our internal waters and what life was like for the keepers who maintained them. Free, no registration required for the in-person program, held in the museum auditorium. Or watch online live via the museum’s Facebook page or Zoom.
