Cape Lookout Light Station
A "Light Station" consists not only of the actual lighthouse but also any supporting structures such as the keeper's quarters, oil house, cisterns, coal and wood sheds and any other storage or work buildings.

A list of the known Keepers of the Cape Lookout light is also available.
