The February 2001 edition of Lighthouse Digest reported on a proposed replica of the 1866 Roanoke River Lighthouse to be built in the town of Plymouth, North Carolina. The project has progressed to the point that the replica is due to be completed in January 2003. A new maritime museum is also being established across the street from the replica. The museum will house exhibits on local history as well as the lighthouse and the families who lived and worked there. Historic boats from the region will be displayed and classes in traditional boatbuilding will be offered.
