On Saturday, April 15, 2017 throngs of visitors came out to celebrate Old Baldy's 200th birthday. The day was a success with 450 lighthouse climbers and over 600 total people in attendance. Children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and collected 3,000 eggs filled with sweet treats. Many North Carolina dignitaries were in attendance and spoke about the importance of Old Baldy to North Carolina history and the Cape Fear region.

 

The 200th Anniversary celebration will continue all year long with multiple events.

LOST LENSES FOUND AT THRIFT SHOP

 

Just about everyone knows of John Havel’s love for the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. So it was no coincidence when one Sunday after church a friend approached him and said, “I think I may have found a lens from a lighthouse. I go to flea markets a lot and last week I was at the Thieves Market in Raleigh. I think I saw a pair of lighthouse lenses." Havel was skeptical but as she began to describe them, he realized she may have seen some real prisms from a lighthouse lens. Havel and his wife Aida drove straight to the store and quickly located the two bullseye flash panels. Each was about 3-feet tall by 10-inches wide with beautiful circular-cut prisms encased in a bronze frame.

DEDICATION OF THE KEEPERS OF THE LIGHT AMPHITHEATER

 

There has been another rescue at Cape Hatteras. In late January and early February of this year, a quiet project began at the Cape Hatteras Light Station that will speak loudly into the future. Thirty-six granite stones engraved with keepers’ names once comprised the revered area marking the original site of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse foundation--fondly known by many as the "Circle of Stones."
