Searching the Lights

Lighthouses served as traffic signals for vessels along ocean coastlines and major inland waterways. South Carolina has ten standing lighthouses with seven service lighthouses still standing. 

The Beacons of South Carolina is a history of the old towers of the Palmetto state. This
 book includes details of where and how the lighthouses were built, individual characteristics and amazing facts about each light. Learn about the lightkeepers as well as some interesting legends passed down over time. Most of these structures are closed to the public and are no longer in service, having been rendered obsolete by advances in maritime and communications technologies. Their heritage lives on as relics of a maritime history that continues to hold a fascination for each new generation.
