Edenton Waterfront and Lighthouse, NC

Edenton, NC Lighthouse

Wow, what a very scenic and historic site near the Edenton, NC Airport! Ask for the courtesy car at the airport and take a short ride into town and check out the waterfront area - really something special!

You will enjoy the view, small shops, restaurants and traditional vintage 1940's downtown area.  Lots to see and do.

Background on the lighthouse....

Built in 1886, the restored Roanoke River Lighthouse now stands proudly in the harbor at Edenton, NC. The lighthouse first served as a guide for ships navigating the waters of the Albemarle Sound into the Roanoke River, and then, after being decommissioned in 1941, was moved by barge across the sound to private land, where it ultimately deteriorated as a neglected residence.

Its history, as one would expect, is filled with fateful events and colorful characters. A band of dedicated volunteers, public officials and preservationists brought it to its final home. With state funds, the structural restoration work continues as volunteer donations and furnishings are gathered for the still-to-be-completed interior, before it is opened to the public in mid-2014.
