Bald Head Island Lighthouse

Bald Head Lighthouse in NC

See the Bald Head Island Lighthouse

Coastal North Carolina's Bald Head Island is the home to this iconic landmark – Bald Head Lighthouse. The original lighthouse, built in 1794, guided ships away from the coast at the mouth of the Cape Fear River, as they made their way to Wilmington.

The original lighthouse was replaced by "Old Baldy" in 1817, when the land started to erode along the river bank.

The octagonal brick "Old Baldy" was built farther back off the coast, away from the shifting sands. This 110 foot tall beacon remains North Carolina's oldest standing lighthouse.

The first lighthouse keeper was American Revolution veteran, Sedgewick Springs, who owned the Sedgely Abby Plantation, located close to the lighthouse.

Due to the lighthouse's location off the coast and the thick fog, a lightship was added on the Frying Pan Shoals and a fog bell was positioned near the lighthouse.

Once the Oak Island Lighthouse was built in 1958, "Old Baldy" was decommissioned. Visit this historic treasure, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, for a glimpse into the past.
