Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Repairs and Landscaping Improvements
The objective of this project is to rehabilitate and restore interior and exterior elements of the National Historic Landmark lighthouse and its character-defining features. This restoration and rehabilitation include repairing or replacing deteriorated materials and finishes, and selectively removing modern, non-sympathetic treatments added after the historically significant period following the lighthouse's construction (1870-1936), known as the "period of significance." Additionally, the project purpose includes providing a more immersive visitor experience by improving circulation and opportunities for visitor education around the light station landscape and buildings while considering ways to improve the resiliency of the Light Station and grounds.
