Bodie Island Lighthouse

Bodie Island Lighthouse

See the Bodie Island Lighthouse

It took a while to get today’s Bodie Island Lighthouse to stick around. It was built in a location where it was determined a lighthouse was necessary for navigation and protection from the dangerous cape.

The first lighthouse opened in 1847 but due to mistakes in construction had to be abandoned after 12 years. Another lighthouse opened in 1859, but Union troops blew it up during the Civil War.

Today’s Bodie Island Lighthouse opened in 1872 near Kill Devil Hills. Pronounced “body”, the lighthouse rises 156 feet and towers above the Cape Hatteras National Seashore on the North Carolina coast.

The grounds surrounding the lighthouse feature marshlands, maritime forest, ponds, and more that make for great bird and nature watching.
