Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

Buxton, North Carolina
Built in 1870

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, is at 208 feet, the tallest lighthouse in the United States.
Due to natural erosion of the shoreline, the lighthouse was moved
approximately one-half mile to safer ground. This move was completed in January 2000.
