Life of the Cape Hatteras Lightkeeper

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a lightkeeper? The position of lightkeeper was to keep the light station in tip-top condition and keep watch for ships passing by the Diamond Shoals. The lightkeeper’s had a list of duties that needed to be done, including carrying fuel up to the lantern room and refueling the lamp, regularly cleaning and polishing the lenses, windows, brass and tools, lighting and extinguishing the lamp daily, monitoring the light at night, painting, greeting visitors and keeping records and reports. As the light station grew, so did the number of staff. Along with the lightkeeper, their families lived at the station in the keeper’s quarters. The families had to be self-sufficient and grew most of their own food and kept live stock on the grounds around the lighthouse.
