Lighthouse Restoration Project

(Click on photo to view larger image.)

This Friday, March 19, at 7:00 pm at the Ocracoke Community Center, Alex Klahm & his crew will present photos, stories, & details about their recent project, the restoration of our beloved 1823 lighthouse. Be sure to spread the word...and to come out to hear (and see a power point presentation) about the work they have done.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of early twentieth century itinerant salesmen, entertainers, and preachers who found their way to the island. You can read it here.

    Is there any way the Ocracoke lighthouse presentation can be put on the web for those of us whose hearts are in Ocracoke but find their bodies far away on the mainland? It sounds so informative and interesting!

  2. Re. web access to the upcoming lighthouse presentation: I am not able to facilitate this because of pressing personal issues (I may not even make it to the presentation). Perhaps someone else reading this could make this happen. If I get to the presentation I will ask Alex if he has any plans to publish his photos, etc.

    Thank you, Philip, for asking Alex about whether or not he may have plans to publish his photos, etc. That's most kind of you to ask.

    Also, for yoursake, I hope you will be able to make it to the presentation.

    Would like to know the type and wattage of the light.
