The English family often lived in this house when not living at Cape Lookout.  The lighthouse was located between the end of Harkers Island and Cape Lookout at the point where Pamlico Sound is very marshy and wide but shallow. The island was owned by the very rich who had hunting lodges and cabins there to use while duck hunting. James English helped to keep the place up. The island was wiped out by a tremendous hurricane that completely decimated the coastline. (Photo courtesy Bill Norwood.)
