The 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse has been moved to its permanent location over Edenton Bay, one of the last screw pile lighthouses of its kind in the U.S. It was moved from the mouth of the Roanoke River and for many years was a private residence. At present, tours of the exterior and its history are interpreted. This amazing structure is ready for tours of the interior as well giving you a complete look of life on the water from a Light Keepers perspective.

Furnishings have been provided through the Edenton Historical Commission.
