U.S. Life-Saving Station in Portsmouth Historic Village

November 2015 (approx.)

Detailed Description

A U.S. Life-Saving Station in Portsmouth Historic Village, Cape Lookout National Seashore. The station was build in 1894 to rescue ship-wrecked mariners. This is one of many cultural resources at Cape Lookout National Seashore that may be threatened by climate change. Erin Seekamp, a researcher working with the DOI Southeast Climate Science Center (managed by USGS), is developing a method to identify which of the Park's cultural resources are most in need of management action in the face of climate chage. Erin Seekamp, public domain
