It was one of two range lights at Price Creek in a series of lights to guide ships from Cape Fear to Wilmington, North Carolina.[1][2][3][4] History In 1849, a two-story, brick lightkeeper's house with a wooden lantern was built as one of the lights. During the American Civil War, this served the Confederacy as a signal house to communicate between Fort Fisher and Fort Caswell. This house was destroyed by storms.[4] The second range light is a conical brick tower originally 20 feet (6 m) tall with a base diameter of 17 feet (5 m). The light was approximately 25 feet (8 m) above sea level. The bricks had been imported from England. It originally had eight lamps with reflectors measuring 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter.[1] The tower was later extended to a height of 26 feet (8 m), but suffered damage from shells during the Civil War. The lantern has been removed.[4] The surviving range light is located at the edge of Archer Daniels Midland's industrial site on the bank of the Cape Fear River. It can be best viewed from the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry or from the ferryboat landing at Southport.[1][4] Pictures Rare 1939 Postcard Showing Price's Creek Front-Range Light Rare 1908 Postcard Showing Price's Creek Rear-Range Light and Keeper's House References ^ a b c Bansemer, Roger, Bansemer's Book of Carolina & Georgia Lighthouses, Pineapple Press, Sarasota, FL, 2000, pp. 50-53, ISBN 1-56164-194-4. ^ Harrison, Tom, and Jones, Ray, Endangered Lighthouses, Globe Pequot Press, Guildord, CT, 2001, p. 40, ISBN 0-7627-0815-8. ^ Roberts, Bruce, and Jones, Ray, Southern Lighthouses: Outer Banks to Cape Florida, 3rd ed., Globe Pequot Press, Guildord, CT, 2002, p. 27, ISBN 0-76274-1243-0. ^ a b c d Zepke, Terrance, Lighthouse of the Carolinas, Pineapple Press, Sarasota, FL, 2002, pp. 57-60, ISBN 1-56164-148-0. v · d · eLighthouses of North Carolina Active: Bodie Island Light • Cape Hatteras Light • Cape Lookout Light • Currituck Beach Light • Oak Island Light • Ocracoke Light Deactivated/Dismantled: Bald Head Light • Cape Fear Light • Diamond Shoal Light • Federal Point Light • Frying Pan Shoals Light • Hatteras Beacon • Price Creek Light • Roanoke Marshes Light • Roanoke River Light • Wade Point Light
