Bodie Island Lighthouse Poster




Bodie Island Lighthouse is on the Outer Banks, North Carolina In 1843, the Federal Government examined the coastline for potential lighthouse sites that would supplement Cape Hatteras and determined that they were in great need of a beacon near Bodie Island because “more vessels are lost there than on any other part of our coast”. In 1871 the lighthouse as we see it today was built. It was lit on October 1, 1872, magnified by a powerful First Order Fresnel lens that is visible for 18 nautical miles. Today the light station’s property, except the tower, has been transferred to the National Park Service. The tower still functions as a U S Coast Guard navigational aid. The tower is 156’. The distinguishing day marks are its black and white horizontal bands.
