You'd probably never know this lighthouse was even here if someone hadn't told you about it. It's located just before you reach Southport via the Ft. Fisher Ferry. It's very small so try to find it on your next trip!
We enjoyed looking for this little known lighthouse on the ferry between Southport and Fort Fisher. Get on the left side of the ferry when leaving Southport and you'll spot it right before the long dock.
This lighthouse is one of the last river lighthouses that once help guide ships upriver to the ports and city of Wilmington. It is no longer in use, but is easy to see on the West bank of the Cape Fear River as the Fort Fisher to Southport Ferry slows to dock in Southport...or as the Ferry leaves the Southport...
Price's Creek Lighthouse is a must see when you are in the area. Great fishing while enjoying the history of this landmark. Just think of the engineering and labor that went into building such structure.
Please visit and enjoy!
The remnants of this little lighthouse are fun for lighthouse fans to behold. We took the ferry from Southport to Fort Fisher to see it - make sure you are on the left side of the ferry once it begins its crossing. Only the brick base remain, but it was a pleasant surprise to see it so clearly, as sources...
