Lighthouse in Corolla, NC

On my way to get information on the wild horses in Corolla  my niece and I came across a lighthouse.

Currituck Beach Lighthouse was completed on December 1, 1875. This is still a functioning lighthouse that is owned by OBC (Outer Banks Conservationist).

Some facts:

  1.  There are 220 steps to the top
  2. 1,000,000 bricks
  3. Base of the lighthouse is over 5 1/2 feet thick
  4. Top of lighthouse is 3 feet thick

Check out Wikipedia for more facts.
