Congratulations! You are now a North Carolina Lighthouse historian!

You have learned so much about your lighthouse's history, features, characteristics, and importance! You are a lighthouse expert!

However, your lighthouse is just the tip of the iceberg... there are 9 lighthouses in North Carolina, and over 30 lost lighthouses.  The lost lighthouses have disappeared from our coastline because of storms, warfare, neglect, and time. 

Here are some interesting websites about our state's lost lighthouses:
