Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on North Carolina’s Outer Banks is one of the most visited lighthouses in the world. The lighthouse that stands today began service on December 16, 1870. At 198 feet, it’s the tallest lighthouse in the United States. The National Park Service manages the lighthouse and keepers’ quarters, as well as conducting public tours. The Outer Banks Lighthouse Society also actively supports all North Carolina Lighthouses. A major restoration of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse will soon be underway. Two people are interviewed in this episode. Alisa Hardin-Lapp is the supervisory park ranger for the Hatteras Island District, and John Havel is a board member of the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society who has done many years of research on the history of Cape Hatteras light station.
