HISTORY OF THE CHICAMACOMICO LIFESAVING STATION

The Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station Historic Site & Museum is the only museum in North Carolina that commemorates the Outer Banks shipwrecks, rescues, men, and daily events of the early United States Lifesaving Service. It is one of the most complete Lifesaving Station sites in the country and the only one designated as a "hands-on" teaching museum.

Located on the Atlantic beaches of Rodanthe, the unique site includes structures from two historic periods: the 1874 station and its outbuildings, and the 1911 station and supporting structures. Our goal is to provide interpretation of both these exciting historical periods in the US Life-Saving Service and to provide living history programs that help recreate the era.
