1941 National Park Service Property Map - Buxton & Hatteras
A special "Thank you" goes out to Hatteras Island's foremost lighthouse historian, John M. Havel. He has provided us with
the use of this wonderful enhanced map. It is now more user
friendly, due to the many hours he spent revamping it.
Just to let you know a little bit more about it...
This large format map is at the Outer Banks History Center. John, scanned it in 6 pieces back in 2014. The map is heavily folded
and has stains and marks across it. He took a long time to piece together and optimize the black and colored lines (drawing) and separate them from the dirty background, then put it back together
in Photoshop to create the clean, crisp version and printouts.
But, anyone can go to the OBHC and access the original map.
