Shortly after the construction of several coastal lighthouses in N.C. it was apparent that some locations would require additional warning lights. The dangerous shoals of Diamond, Lookout and Frying Pan still proved difficult to navigate for many seafaring captains. Join Associate Curator Benjamin Wunderly to learn about the early attempts to mark these treacherous waters and what has happened to the latest towers. The free presentation is part of our Brown Bag Gam series; so grab a lunch and join us at noon.
