Resources for Teachers

This is a collection of resources that I have come across in my research. It just didn’t seem fair to keep them all to myself. I’ve tried to organize them by topic (for example, lighthouses, North Carolina, dogs). Let me know if there are others I should add to the list!


Lighthouses

Lighthouses of the Carolinas: A Short History and Guide by Terrance Zepke. Published by Pineapple Press; 1st edition (June 1, 1998)

Stephen Wilmoth posted an article with a great set of pictures when the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society (OBLHS) visited the Price’s Creek Lighthouse in 2005.
