Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station: Heritage Alive
At Rodanthe, one of 21 coastal Byway villages, Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station’s compound connects visitors to a National Register-eligible historic district of five houses and outbuildings (ca.1900-50), the remains of rare small fish house, a harbor, and a village schoolhouse, now a community space. The district shows how villages centered on life-saving stations. First built in 1874, Chicamacomico is the most completely restored life-saving station remaining along NC barrier islands. Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site and museum gift shop are open from mid-April to Thanksgiving Friday, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission. Also available by appointment.
