The current Ocracoke Lighthouse was built in 1823 on Ocracoke Island in North Carolina. The locals will tell you the lighthouse is the second oldest operating lighthouse in the United States but it's not. The current lighthouse is the oldest operating light in North Carolina and ranks in as the 12th oldest operating lighthouse in the United States. If the Original Ocracoke Lighthouse were still standing and operational today it would be the 5th oldest in the country; it was built in 1798. The current light service was briefly interrupted in 1864 when the Confederate Army destroyed the fourth order Fresnel lens.
