On Wednesday, Dec. 16, the National Park Service celebrated the 150th anniversary of the lighting of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

The historic day was Dec. 16, 1870.

Some 150 years later, around 4:45 in the early evening, a remarkable video aired on Dare County’s Current TV channel.

The premiere of the almost 40-minute presentation was exciting. Due to inclement weather, a previously filmed illumination of the Cape Hatteras light started the video.

A welcome was extended by David Hallac, superintendent of the National Parks
