There are a couple of lighthouses along the Outer Banks, and the most famous is the lighthouse at Cape Hatteras, which is also is the tallest one. The lighthouse was originally erected in 1794, but this is a replacement from 1870 and it was moved to its current location in 1999, as erosion had brought the sea a bit too close to the lighthouse.
