Ellen Marie devoted many years of her life working to preserve the heritage and culture of Ocracoke Island and Portsmouth Village. She was the author of several books, including Ocracoke Lighthouse.
In Chapter 6 of her book, Ellen Marie recounts a personal lighthouse story, "The Great Window Heist." Several years before her death, she granted me permission to republish this story, hoping it would be an inspiration to others working in the area of historical preservation. As a tribute to Ellen Marie and her tireless work sharing Ocracoke culture and history with others, we have published the story as our current monthly Newsletter.
