Bodie Island Lighthouse

North Carolina’s Bodie Island Lighthouse is one of six lighthouses still in operation in North Carolina.  Built in 1872, it’s one of a dozen brick tower lighthouses in America  and is one of the few lighthouses to still use an original first order Fresnel lens.

The lighthouse underwent restoration between 2009 and 2013.  Under the care of the National Park Service and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the beautiful tower is open to visitors who wish to climb its 214 steps.

This photo was taken on a visit in 1999 with a film camera.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
