HARKERS ISLAND, NC –On the morning of August 29, 2016, Cape Lookout National Seashore personnel received a report from park volunteers that the historic 1907 Keeper's Quarters had been vandalized. This home sits along the waters of Cape Lookout Bight and is considered part of the historic district and was original to the Light Station. The damage occurred between the dates of August 27, 2016 and August 28, 2016.

The damage to the historic home includes nine separate windows having the glass panes broken out and window frames pulled apart, construction items and window frames being thrown out of the broken second floor windows, and an entire section of the porch railing with spindles being torn apart.
