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 US. It was moved from the mouth of the Roanoke River and for many years was a private residence. This amazing structure is open for tours, giving you a complete look of life on the water from a lightkeeper's perspective.

Furnishings have been provided through the Edenton Historical Commission.
