2017 23rd ANNUAL OBLHS KEEPERS' WEEKEND is coming up
and YOU'RE INVITED!!    !! REGISTER NOW !! 

 

This year our celebration will recognize the 200th Anniversary of the 1817 Bald Head Island Lighthouse, fondly known as “Old Baldy.” But our weekend will include so much more!  Beginning at mid-day on Friday, October 6th, all participants will get a tour of North Carolina’s newest lighthouse on Oak Island, built in 1959. There will also be a tour of the Southport Maritime Museum followed by our annual Keepers’ Weekend Banquet featuring North Carolina barbecue and fried chicken (as well as vegetarian options).

 

 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.”

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.

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.​
