Cape Hatteras National Seashore Local Attractions Professional Review and Guide
"On the soundside of the island amid tall pine trees, a lush green lawn, and freshwater marsh and ponds, the Bodie Island Lighthouse occupies an unusual setting for an Atlantic lighthouse. The portion of Cape Hatteras National Seashore on which it sits—Bodie Island—is largely undeveloped, so you can get a pretty good idea of the isolation the lightkeeper must have experienced when the lighthouse was first lit on October 1, 1872.
