Roanoke River Lighthouse & Maritime Museum
Explore this detailed replica of the second Roanoke River Lighthouse--one of three important light stations on the Roanoke River from 1810 to the 1950s. The original was built in 1866 and fell victim to an ice storm that froze the Albemarle Sound and cut two of its pilings. The Roanoke River Lighthouse is establishing a new significance as a visitor attraction and Gateway to the Outer Banks Lighthouses.

Lighthouse exhibits paint a picture of this once-bustling port town. Climb the spiral staircase and look out toward the end of this mighty river, where a lonely keeper was isolated for days or weeks with only his chickens and goats on the lower deck.
The Roanoke River Maritime Museum, across the street from the lighthouse, displays old photographs that tell stories of the fishermen, farmers, foresters, merchants, soldiers, and paper makers.
