The Keeper Stones
John M. Havel, Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Researcher and Board Member of the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society, photographed
the granite stones after they were moved from their former site known as, The Circle of Stones. It was where the 1870 lighthouse stood prior to it's move in 1999. This growing collection
of photographs and artwork, is an endeavor in which
to preserve their images.
