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. In the 20th century, a radio-beacon or other electronic navigational aid might have been added to the station.

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