Like the Hatteras Lighthouse 53 miles (85 km) to the south along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Bodie Island Lighthouse (pronounced “body”) stands 156 feet (47.5 m) and is also part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and maintained by the National Park Service. Unlike other lighthouses which switched to aviation beacons, the Bodie Island Lighthouse maintains an original first-order Fresnel lens to cast its light.
