1874 Life-Saving Station

Rodanthe, North Carolina 

Interior of the 1874 station on the grounds of the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station, looking out toward the Atlantic. The Beebe-McClellan surfboat seen here is 26 feet long and was placed into service at this station in 1911. This boat was used in the rescue of the Mirlo in 1918, which was the most highly awarded maritime rescue in U.S. History.
