Visit the Stone Harbor Life Saving Station, built in 1895, it was recently placed on the national Register of Historic Places. Throughout the facility there are murals and displays outlining this stations heritage to our current Coast Guard. The surf men assigned to this station were the heroes of the American Coast. They routinely risked their lives in maritime rescues. The Life Saving Service was the answer to the most basic question of shipwrecked sailors. Who will help us in our time of greatest need? Climb our tower to observe the vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, Hereford Inlet and the back bays that the surf men continuously monitored for ships in distress.
