Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Replica

The Cape Hatteras Light, at 193' is the tallest brick lighthouse in the U.S. and is located in Buxton, North Carolina. In approximately 1851 this light was raised from its original height of 95' to 150' to provide better visibility. After the Civil War, it was rebuilt to 193' and closer to the water, again to improve visibilty. The tower received a new first-order Fresnel lens and put into operation in 1871. Because of beach erosion, the Cape Hatteras Light has been moved to safety and now sits at it's original distance to the water. Our replica of this light is 30' tall and is the tallest on Lake Havasu
