Prepare yourself for a night of illumination as park ranger Tom Avery of Cape Hatteras National Seashore speaks about the Bodie Island Lighthouse. First lit on October 1, 1872, the Bodie Island Lighthouse has protected mariners from the Diamond Shoals—often called the Graveyard of the Atlantic—for the past 150 years. We invite you to join the North Carolina Museum of History and the National Park Service as we celebrate this iconic beacon. 

Adults only, please.
