Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse
The Outer Banks newest lighthouse is also its smallest.
Instead of a brick beacon towering over a barrier-island beach, this
lighthouse is more akin to a light keeper's house perched over the water.
The original 1857 screw pile lighthouse that aided mariners in Croatan Sound
was a cottage built over the water, with the lighthouse serving as both
beacon and residence. The reconstructed lighthouse was opened in 2004 by the
Town of Manteo, in cooperation with the NC Maritime Museum and Roanoke
Island Festival Park. The lighthouse contains exhibits highlighting Roanoke
Island's maritime history and information on the lighthouse and its keepers.
