Cape Hatteras

Cape Hatteras The first Cape Hatteras Light House was constructed in 1803. After the War Between the States it was thought that the wooden staircase inside the building was a fire hazard so it was decided to build a new light house. The new one was built about 600 yards from the location of the first one and was not completed until 1868 even though it was operational during the 1870s.
