Replacing the original 1812 tower, this light was built in 1859. The distinctive diamond pattern was added in 1873. The black diamonds are oriented in a north- south direction, facing the shallow waters, and the white diamonds are oriented in an east-west direction, towards the deeper water, where anchoring is safe. It is located on the Southern Outer Banks of North Carolina in the Cape Lookout National Seashore.
