Fun Fact: The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, built in 1870 in North Carolina, is the tallest brick lighthouse (208 feet) in North America. The lighthouse was relocated in 1999, and moved away from the ocean to protect against beach erosion. Now located 1,600 feet from the shore, as it did at the time it was built, Cape Hatteras is the largest lighthouse ever to be moved due to erosion problems.
