Lighthouses of the South Atlantic

Lighthouses in this area were often built to warn mariners away from the dangerous shoreline that stretches from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to the Lands End of Key West. These lighthouses stand as centerpieces of a varied and dynamic region, rich in character, culture and history. Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the most famous lighthouse in the region, but the stories of the "Wreckers" and "Mooncussers" and of Blackbeard’s hideout on Ocracoke Island show the other rich history of the region.
