North Carolina Coast Filled with Lighthouse Treasures

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Lighthouses have been a fixture along coastlines throughout the globe.  As settlers arrived in the New World and opened ports to trade with their European mother countries, lighthouses were erected up and down the Atlantic coast to safely guide these merchant ships through the often dangerous waters.  While many of these lighthouses still stand they have been obsolete for some time.  Instead of warning ships as they approached the coast they now draw tourists from inland.
