Tuesday, Sept 19th: North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, SC

 

The Cape Lookout Lighthouse

Shortly after it was completed, it became apparent that the1812 Cape Lookout Lighthouse was ineffective. Almost half a century later--following administrative and policy changes in the Light House Board--the second Cape Lookout Lighthouse was completed. This new, taller tower was better suited to warn mariners of the dangers of Lookout Shoals. However, shortly a er the improved tower was ac vated, war broke out between the states. The light was ex nguished to prevent Union ships from using it to navigate the treacherous North Carolina coast. The light was reestablished with a third order Fresnel lens in 1863 and shone for most of the remainder of the war. Join us as we learn more of the history of the Cape Lookout Lighthouse, an iconic landmark of Carteret County, known as “The Diamond Lady”.
