Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station

Rodanthe, North Carolina 

Last week I spent a few days in North Carolina and visited the Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station historic site and museum. The building above is the 1911 station which was built to replace the 1874 station (which is still standing on the grounds.) The small building to the right of the station is the cook house, also built in 1911.

The station became the prototype for classic Outer Banks architecture, and elements of this design such as dormers, cedar shakes and a tower,  are common in the area's houses and commercial buildings.
