Ocracoke Lighthouse

Ocracoke Lighthouse is the oldest operating lighthouse in North Carolina. It is also the second oldest continuously operating light on the East Coast. Ocracoke stands 65 feet tall, and it reaches 75 feet tall to the focal point of the center of the lens. One side of the lighthouse is more sloped than the other, and the lantern room that was built off-center. Nobody knows why it was built that way.
